Howdy! I wear many hats. Literally. I have almost forty. My Mama would say: “You don't have enough heads for those hats!”

I am a TV Director and a Producing Director. Ava DuVernay graciously asked me to direct two episodes of the second season of her groundbreaking TV series Queen Sugar which airs on OWN. Ava has changed the entire landscape (and the numbers) by only hiring female directors and specifically hiring first-time female directors. Last August, she asked me to be producing director of season three. In addition to producing the entire season I directed three episodes, including the premiere. Season four of Queen Sugar begins June 12! Most recently, I directed an episode of For The People (it aired April 11); The Red Line for CBS (which began airing April 28, my ep airs May 19th), How To Get Away With Murder (it aired on ABC on Valentine’s Day) and Station 19 (my ep aired on April 18!h) I’ve been to Shondaland! Most recently I just wrapped on directing an episode of YOU for Netflix. The new season (2) returns later this year!

I am a Commercial Director. I'm with Sweet Rickey! Peep this behind the scenes.

I'm a Filmmaker (two features I wrote and directed premiered In Competition at The Sundance Film Festival. LIFT, Kerry Washington’s first solo feature, is available on Amazon) and I’m also a Sundance Fellow (Class of '97) having attended both the Filmmaker’s and Writer’s Labs.

I'm a Freelance Copywriter/Creative Director (I was called in to pitch at Arnold Worldwide and my work was selected, aired and won a Clio! Woot!)

And I'm VoiceOver Talent.
