Tell us a bit more about your backstory that led you to this career path?

Like many from my generation, I came from a broken home. I grew up in the flatlands of the south in a small city in rural North Carolina. I lived on my own at a young age, staying on couches and with friends, and I knew there was something greater out there.I would see movies, leading actors, stories, and archetypes they embodied. I could tell how strangers and friends saw me and looked for direction. I wanted to show how I saw the world, which inspired and encouraged me to leave everything behind and make my way to NYC and fell in love with Method Acting. I studied technique at all the institutes, HB Studios, Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg Institute. In that time, I formed my own theatre production company. During that time, I started modeling, and now I’m working on a film.

What led you to become the Founder of Creode Theatre?

It started with reading these plays repeatedly, to the point they would fall apart. I started reading and acting these plays by forming different groups of artists who wanted to put on an authentic, raw and true-to-life representation of theatre. I created Creode as a vessel and avenue for being able to put on high-quality productions for audiences throughout Manhattan who would otherwise not be exposed to it.

What are some of notable projects you’re working on now?

My theatre company has multiple plays ready to enter production, and I’m improving my modeling artistry, landing various magazines and campaigns. I will be working on a film demo coming up for the next few months, where I will be traveling to Europe, the US west coast and southern USA. I’m thrilled about the project, and I encourage you all to stay connected on my Instagram to see the leaks and the talent that I’ll be working with worldwide.

What are some of the top lessons you’ve learned that helped to guide your journey?

* Envision yourself, work hard, commit and don’t give up. Success compounds. Be patient. Trust that no one can replicate your voice. Be authentic—you can never hide from that.

* Be prepared by working hard, write down your goals, look back at those later, and you will be surprised how much of that will become true. Find yourself, know what you have to offer and present yourself in that eye.

* The best thing I have done and suggest would be to write down your goals, envision yourself and build around that. I came from a small town with people who said I would never leave, and I was on my own at 16. Don’t waste your time or ideas on people with small minds, and focus on making your life the way you want it to be, not the way others think it should be.

* Listen to your higher thoughts, trust that and cling on to that ideal. Put an aim in your mind because you will correct yourself onto that path no matter what comes your way. So have a plan, don’t just be someone else’s plan while building and working to know yourself.

* Stay authentic and genuine, so you don’t lose your identity—it’s the core of your vision.

* Be committed, persistent, don’t compromise, and realize it’s essential to put on pressure because success multiplies.

* You have to be willing to adjust and see your projects through, and never be afraid to try for your ultimate goals, your potential is limitless. Only work on what you’re passionate about. This is your legacy.

* Do things that move you, make you want to stay up late, wake up early thinking about it. Let the work guide you and light a fire in you.

* Taking the road less traveled and following your passion. After embarking on my own during my teenage years with a dream, passion and unwavering determination to succeed, I carved my path to success. From honing my craft with Hollywood’s elite acting mentors/coaches to founding my theatre production company, I have become an unstoppable independent force, forging my destiny. Take the road less traveled and make your own path if your passion calls for it.

* Coming from a town with a lot of crime and a cycle of pain and anger, I think it’s essential to empower people to change their lives and accept a new reality. If people can realize their trauma and situation and have the courage to work for something more, we can heal as families, societies, and nations.

* You see yourself beyond your illusions and expectations of the framework you have, and you can sit with your true self in the moment. When you’re present, you can begin to sculpt your destiny.
