I am a proud native of Atlanta, Georgia. I recieved my BA in Theatre from Albany State University and my MFA from LSU's MFA Professional Actor Training Program. During my time at LSU, I was blessed to work with esteemed artist and directors such as Leigh Fondokowski, Sean Daniels, Fiasco, Guillaume Pige, Jennifer Martin, Femi Uba, and Jane Page! After LSU, I made history at Sight & Sound Theatres by becoming the first African American actor to portray Gabriel and The Angel of the Lord in their productions of Miracle of Christmas and Samson. I recently moved to New York to further my career and I am so humbly grateful to announce that I will be in the Tony, Grammy, and Emmy award-winning Broadway Revival National Tour of The Color Purple! I will be featured in the onstage ensemble playing The Guard and I'm also the Mister and Harpo Understudy. I am so excited to embark on this amazing journey! We're coming to a city near you
