I'm not only a narrative feature film director but I produce for TV. However, CURRENT is the only channel where I can tell the stories about the people who inspire me. Blessed with many talented, political, driven,and super-creative friends, it was hard to decide where to start. My first 2 segments are about the amazing artist CRISTY ROAD who also illustrated a graphic novel based on my new feature "FLAMING HETEROSEXUAL FEMALE" and Tunde Adebimpe who is not only a superb actor in my last feature "EXIST", but has an incredible band " TV ON THE RADIO". Hope you enjoy!
