Orlando Florida

Born and raised in Newark, NJ I know what it takes to overcome obstacles to succeed. From singing and performing in glee club and school plays, I discovered my interest in the arts at a very early age. I began modeling at 8 years old and graduated from the Barbizon School of Modeling at 22.I furthered my career aspirations at Essex County College, majoring in Psychology. While there, I fostered my passion for music and poetry and teamed up with my brother and some friends. Together we wrote our very first hip hop song entitled, "Mama" in honor of the women who raised us. 4 years later I met up with some band members from East Orange, NJ and formed my own Spoken Word and R&B band called, "Infyooz". Unfortunately we broke up in 2004. I went on to attend the Art Institute of Atlanta for Video Production. I've completed projects like PSA's, documentaries and medical videos for people like Neil "DOC Hollywood" Schulman and the American Cancer Society, just to name a few. Right now, I'm a Freelance Model, Filmmaker & HipKHop Artist living in Orlando, FL,with my life long and business partner Vashon Moore. My dream is to someday own my own music and filmmaking studio for aspiring artists, such as myself. I want to create a place for people to grow and show case their talents. I believe everyone has at least one talent, but It's up to the individual to decide what to do with!
