I am a gender non-conforming actor living in Oakland CA. I strive to be visible in my identity as queer actor in hopes to provide queer youth and queer communities with the potential of seeing someone who looks like them/us. I began my love of acting as a little, black queer kid in Kentucky fantasizing about being someone else in a body that fit. One of yy favorite shows was Miami Vice. I imagined myself being a sexy cop, tough lawyer or conflicted lieutenant…hence my appreciation for such roles.
As an actor, I want to see more visibility for queer, gender non-conforming artists. I was discovered on the Butch Casting Project, and made my NYC theater premier as “Officer Ruffins,” the town cop, in Room For Cream, La Mama ETC.’s long running lesbian serial (prod. by the Dyke Division of Two-Headed Calf). I then went on to play Alma in KS Steven’s Butch Mamas! at WOW Cafe Theater!, served as the narrator for a staged reading of Dir. Akiva Peñaloza’s romantic comedy Hannah Henri (Scorpyofilms) and had a small role in High Maintenance before moving to the west coast. In Oakland, I have been in several short films and one feature and I am currently developing a webseries, Butches Doing Butchy Things and a short creature feature love story, Dark Sky.
