What made you want to start?
My mom actually helped guide me in the direction I’m going in. She signed me up for a media arts workshop at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) while I was in high school, and ever since the first workshop I just fell in love with all the creativity that I can express within my work.
What is the most success you have receive from it?
It's hard to scale the most success I have received out of what I do. I feel like all the opportunities I encounter are equally rewarding, but with all the work I have done I have been able to work with a few mainstream artist such as A$AP Ferg and Lil Uzi Vert.
What is your next step, your future plans?
My future plans consist of graduating from Tulane and getting in the film industry in New Orleans, however something else I do plan to happen is to own my own studio and do more independent work with clients, which is sort of what I do now, so which ever takes off first is what I will roll with.
What is your main focus, besides your recap videos? What do prefer to photograph or record?
My main focus is to really do more cinematic film type pieces and really fully be able to express my creativity. Recap videos are fun, but it wasn’t really the direction I was going for. I want to make more conscious films about some of the issues that are going on in the world, something that people can relate and learn from.
What are lessons or a lesson that you have learned while in your "Twenties" that concern your future and your work?
A major lesson that I have learned is to continue to invest in yourself. Investing your time and money wisely will always pay off in the long run.
