Happy Black History Month! I PRODUCED MY FIRST FULL-LENGTH TV PILOT!!!! Having a television show that runs for 3+ seasons is one of my big career goals. Filming a pilot is a looooong way from that goal, but it is a major milestone. I won’t share the entire pilot because we’re shopping the idea and seeking […]
Amma be honest with you. Emotionally, I’ve been feeling like a smooth 5/10. Then, my aunt passed away in November, and I dipped to a rocky 4/10. Now that I’m rested and replenished my ice cream levels (Thanks, Donni), I’m feeling like a 5 again. It’s not great, but it’s better than where I was. So, […]

Whomp whomp, our script Counting on Kendra didn’t land us the Sundance Episodic Labs fellowship. How are we feeling? It hurt for a little bit but we have other projects to focus on that not getting Sundance didn’t sting as much. Thankful for everyone who said nice things, sent care packages, and bought me ice cream. Fun fact: American Filmmaker Ava DuVernay was rejected from […]
No, no news from Sundance as yet. We find out on August 12. I’ll post the news (good or bad) in my September newsletter. My funny greeting cards are ready and my online store is live! Please support by art by buying a card. Cards not your thing? Consider sending me ice cream money. Thanks […]
I collaborated with the Forsee Foundation for season two of Soualichi Stories. I wrote and told the tale of Lajabless, the Caribbean she-devil who entices drunk men and turns them into human sacrifices. You can listen to Lajabless and other Caribbean folklore on the Forsee Foundation’s SoundCloud. My funny greeting cards are ready! I’m in the […]
I finally achieved my big goal for 2020: Just Being Funny is syndicated and now reaching thousands of readers! Sadly the world is on fire, and I’m not really in a celebratory mood. As a public figure of sorts, I guess I should make a statement. Black Lives Matter. That’s it. That’s the statement. Here […]
After almost a year of writing, Maya Montrell and I submitted Counting on Kendra to Sundance’s Episodic Lab. And, oh my word, we made it to the second round! We have to wait until August 12 (!!!) to know whether we’ve made it into the program. Fingers crossed!
Last year I sold eight cards to American Greetings. Since then, many of you have asked when my funny greeting cards will be available for purchase. Well, I contacted American Greetings’ Creative Team and basically it takes years before card ideas hit the shelves.
Wuz gud, homie? I’m twenty years late but I need to get this off my chest. Waiting to Exhale sucked. It sucked so bad I need to tell the world even if it gets my Black card revoked. Chicago Public Schools are closed but the kids are still getting homework assignments via email. Sucks that […]
