I am interested in meeting and collaborating with like-minded people. I would love to work in the kid’s programming.  Currently, I am developing an afrofuturist science mockumentary show for kids with CBC. I love the research I get to do when starting a project, if you need a researcher I’m here for you. I love a good story with heart. I write with my heart.
