Heart and Entertainment
My goal in life is to be creative and influential. Throughout my childhood I have had an extraordinary passion for bringing audiences to their feet in bursts of rapid applause. I've hone these talents throughout my adolescence years, producing vibrant productions in the basement of my childhood home and educational intuitions. My assiduity to detail and enthusiasm for the arts allows me to express organic creativity, to produce simple yet effective results. The arts have afforded me the opportunity to influence learn and grow as an artist, while overcoming new challenging endeavors.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of Maryland at College Park. Throughout recent years I have become an influential figure in any community I engage with, working with multiple philanthropic endeavors through art related events. My creativity is ignited by experiences through faith and genuine love for all mankind while growing up in Baltimore City. As a Visual Artist and lover of Architecture . I primarily focus on the decaying urban environment. You can find examples in my Art Gallery Tab. Capability to visually represent discarded structures into works of Art, has allowed many to learn more about the urban experience and its influences. Above all, I've learned that my creative mentality has enhanced my ability to communicate new ideas and perspectives.
Recently I have drawn attention to African American Communities in the city I am from. Moving back home to Baltimore has been a blessing. I am in a direct position to positively impact the lives of those who reside in historic Upton. I intend to use my experience in independent and community based film to usher in a new renaissance in Black Arts in Baltimore, Pennsylvania Ave. The Spirit of the jazz, blues, and human expression lives through artist and we must be a part of the community to evoke that much needed change. I have started Community film projects in Upton. Including, a film documentary with Jim Reid, Sculptor of the Billie Holiday statue. Independent film and acting opportunities for the youth and young adults. A Theatrical shadow casting for film fans and film buffs willing to express themselves and challenge social norms. Our history of moving sound will merge with the strong visual present.

Now...You might be wondering why Rocky Horror, How Rocky Horror?
So one evening while in college, I was having a pretty dry night. Most of my friends had gone home for the weekend and I didn't have anything planned. Tired of my two roommates talking about video games, family guy, and math. I decided to see if anyone else from our scholarship program was around. I realized a friend was on campus after sending out a few text to the "extended friends". Buzz, Buzz the phone vibrates and it's Adanze ! The Nigerian Queen baby! We bonded over dancing. I loved dancing with her! She could hang with all the "dutty whines", slow whines. You know, all the reggae dance moves. I told her I need to go outside! She shared the same sentiments. Our first thought was to go to "The Stamp". Center for Student life, The Stamp was our home away from the dorm. I mean, a full food court, 5 star restaurant, bowling alley with Arcade. Art Gallery, Bookstore, Student orgs offices, a movie Theater. Yea... lit! We both lived on north campus which is what some in "The Black Community" would refer to as "The city or "The Bronx" because of the many high rise style dorms that flanked Byrd stadium.
The Stamp was about a 15 minute walk from our dorm. Whiling walking over, we reminisced about the last party we'd attended and how much fun it was. Talked about classes and our progress academically. We reached the Stamp and it was pretty quiet. A few students sitting about, we decided to go to the food court. As we approached the food court we noticed a line that seemed to be leading to the movie theater. It was really late, so I knew it had to be some kind of special presentation. Our curious minds had to know what was going on. We walked through the food court as we got closer we noticed everyone seemed to be dressed up. Fishnets, Heels, Leather Gear, Glitter, Sparkle... my curiosity peeked. The bravery, gull, the gumption! I looked at Adanze and said "we going". She was down for it. We waited in line, never knowing what we were in for. The line grew as more of these free spirits arrived, it moved right along. I do not remember seeing any black people and that made me wonder why?
As we approached the entrance, we were greeted by a rather impersonal character dressed as a henchman. He was accompanied by a stark maid with big red hair, pale face and red lips. She was cute. Adanze proceeds in front of me. We proceed forward. Have you ever seen "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"? a greeter asks. Adanze responded, no. She reaches up with red lipstick in her hand and draws a "V" on her forehead. I proceed forward , It's my turn, all the while thinking about the many foreheads that had come in contact with the lipstick before me. We enter the Theater with the "Mark of the Virgin" on our foreheads.
