Why It’s Important To Never Stop

  This weekend I attended a panel on social justice during the BlackStar Film Festival. The panel was two of my favorite things in life; free and educational. I gained a lot of insight on how I should approach representing the characters in my stories as well as how I should approach my writing in general. The panel, which began… Read more →

Monday’s Motivation

Keep On Moving Sometimes when I’m thinking of where to draw my motivation from I never have to look any further than my own life experiences.

You

When I sit and think about where I was five years ago it makes me wonder. At 30 years old I had just snuck back into Philly after completing a fabulous FREE trip around the world. I was about ten lbs skinnier, I had cornrows and a strange mountain man goatee. But inside I had become different. All of the… Read more →
