In 2021, I graduated from The University of the West Indies with a BFA in animation. It wasn’t easy, especially since I was balancing my freelance business, extracurriculars, and volunteering. I also had the privilege of winning a pitch & contract to develop an Animated short for Sesame Workshop alongside an awesome team that aired in 2022. In 2020 I was an IFLE artist Laureate. The Brodber/Pollard Prize was later awarded to me from the University of the West Indies for creative writing in 2021. My most recent pride is being a recipient of the CATAPULT Arts Grant in 2022.  Open for commissions and full-time/part-time employment & contracts:
