Born in the village of Tepa, Ghana my father and I traveled to America for an opportunity to change our narrative. With English as my second language, I have spent my entire life trying to find belonging and understanding. At times I questioned if I could shoulder this journey. I have failed many times chasing false dreams that in return have built the necessary discipline needed to embark on this voyage in pursuit of my purpose.
Currently living in New York City, I have been blessed with the opportunity to cultivate my skills in filmmaking, and recognize the responsibility that I have to be a voice for people of diverse backgrounds. The art of storytelling holds an immense cultural significance in underrepresented communities - particularly communities of color. Through my storytelling I aim to challenge perspectives and take every mind, body, and soul on a journey full of truth and exploration. I have much to learn but will never give up as I am a living testimony of the power of one man’s dream.
