my new single is out!

this friday, march 6th i took the plunge and released my 1st single after being so shy about it my whole life. i appreciate all the support ive gotten and am working on music video for it in the next couple of months. now available on all platforms!

Earlier this year I premiered my documentary at Twitter HQ-NYC

When I visited Cali, Colombia last summer I had the honor of meeting the incredible Valerie and Macu. Valerie is a Black trans woman. Macu is a Black self described marica/non binary person. I interviewed them and put together a documentary. The sound files were lost forever and its put together very crudely. But even then part of said interview ended up premiering at Twitter’s Afrolatinx Film Night this past February. Very grateful to Val and Macu and to Twitter for the space to let them tell their stories. Here are some photos from the event and the video. The full interview is still being subtitled and edited and should be available by Spring 2020.

Had never done a spanish language interview before this Virginia Vallejos one for RT.

This interview I did for DIS series *whats in the box* is making the rounds!

I had so much fun with Hannah late last year talking about my presence on social media. It was released in January and is now being shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art and CCCB’s Influencer conference in Barcelona. I had no idea until my followers started tagging me!

Dove Beauty and Mic asked me to partner with them to talk about my art and beauty standards…

This partnership spot for Dove Beauty X Mic was filmed in my old apartment in New Jersey. Grateful for the opportunity.

This summer I had the honor of being on Blossom TV (a channel for women of color, by a Black woman and all Black girl technical crew) in collaboration with, . It was an amazing experience and I got to talk and vibe with some brilliant, beautiful ground-breaking AfroLatinas about issues affecting us. Catch it at

This was such a surreal experience. Never imagined I would be flown out to Mexico City to do a TEDx talk. Humbled and honored.
