I started out writing rhymes in my bedroom in middle school. It was my way of journaling. I’ve always been a creative so the transition from writing rhymes to writing plays was pretty seamless. I moved to Atlanta from Indiana in 2005 because I had won all that I could win in my home state. My sister Jah mentioned that Atlanta had a huge poetry scene and it would be great if I moved here to try it out. So, I packed up my one suitcase and hopped on the greyhound shaking in my shelltoes. I was a nervous wreck because, here I am from this little small town – Fort Wayne, Indiana and I heard so many stories about how big and fast Atlanta was. My friends used to say, “Wouldn’t it be crazy if you got to Atlanta and started working at a radio station?” I would say, “Nah…not likely.” But that’s exactly what happened! I went to a temp agency, got positioned at V-103 for eight months and they liked my dimples so much, they hired me full-time…lol. I was there for nearly 15 years.
I was able to learn how to run events from some of the greats that worked there, such as Shelice Smith, Tara Thomas, Eugene Brooks and one of the best PD’s (Program Directors) known to mankind, Reggie Rouse. The knowledge that I learned from them, led me to building my own brand and events company. My business partner Shaun “Ticc Boom” Gentry and I have been able to produce 15 plays and a countless number of other events with the knowledge we’ve gained over the years. We are currently in the process of preparing for ‘Aunt Sarah’s Girls.’ It is an all female cast and we discuss things that African American women go through in society such as; depression, self esteem, abandonment, addiction, trust issues, rape & so much more. Aunt Sarah's Girls is more than a play, its a movement. I want women to understand they are not alone. We are all going through something. It takes a Village and we have to start with us. We are the change. We are the culture.
