Speaks To

Born in the real chocolate city, Washington, D.C., with my family hailing from Haiti, I started performing at the age of 3 in Lome, Togo and never stopped. When I returned to DC I attended Washington International School aka didnt speak English for a while and continued my dancing, acting, and singing training at Jones/Haywood Youth Ballet. My lovingly traditional haitian parents needed me to get a degree, so I gave them a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania.
To their dismay, upon graduation I ran to NYC to be my full artist self and had the opportunity to perform works by Robert Battle, Paul Taylor, Francesca Harper, as well as vocal artists Pharrell Williams, Beyonce, among others. My Film/TV credits include: Bolden! (King Bolden), Before I Disappear (Dear Vista), The Blacklist (NBC), Gotham (FOX), The Deuce (HBO)and Godfather of Harlem (EPIX). Off-Broadway Ive performed in The Liquid Plain (Signature Theater) and Standard Time (Fulton Theater). This year I wrote, directed and starred in my first film Delivered, from Magnitude 7. Through my work, I strive to give a voice to those who dont usually get to be heard. When Im not performing you can catch me teaching meditation, reiki, or swinging kettlebells in a Nike SuperRep.
