“I’m gonna be an artist!” That was my childhood mantra—even before I knew what it meant. You see, growing up in St. Albans, Queens and with family roots firmly planted in Harlem, I was surrounded by artistic expression, much of it created by my own family and much more blooming from the talented artists like Count Basie, James Brown and others who lived in our community—a community that would also bring us Run DMC, LL Cool J and Tribe Called Quest.
 
Yes, I knew the path I would take but had no idea of the journey it would become. Untethered by labels, I have scratched my creative itch through writing, filmmaking, photography, and music; always aspiring to tell a story that touches and inspires us to see the world a little bit differently and with a little more empathy. 

 

For the past four years, I have been immersed in TRESPASS, bringing focus to Los Angeles' homeless community through my photographs, writings, and film. I eagerly and with great respect share the stories of those who are often unseen and unheard, hoping that we as a society will realize that the unhoused are not THEM - they are US. I am honored and humbled to announce the May 2024 release of Trespass... Portraits of Unhoused Life, Love, and Understanding (Broadleaf Books): a collection of my photographs, reflections, and portrayals of those who have shared their world with me. Through TRESPASS, I hope to find a way into your heart, feed you spirit, and bring us all a little bit closer to those who need us most.
