Here’s a look at the past. And a song. By Louie Armstrong.
“… and there is no border that divides us. There is no wall high enough that we can’t come to each other.
Because in this struggle, we need each other to survive.”
That one time I got over 4 million views for OkayAfrica in a video that took me less than a day to edit. Just goes to show you how random life is.
Here’s a video I shot and edited for Okay Africa back in 2016.
I shot and edited this piece a while back in March 2018 for Okay Player, but it never aired. Anyway, think of this video as a look at the other side of Jussie Smollett. The part that gravitates people to him.
So a couple of weeks ago, Elliot and I produced a #musicvideo for a dope af friend, fellow filmmaker and amazing singer @vonmiddleton for his song #putitonyou Making art with friends is always dope 🙏🏿 check out the full song by searching “Put it On You Von Middleton” on YouTube. 🎥 @clutchmastere 🎬 @paul.noticeaka @thenoticeblog
So shot, directed, edited and produced this music video for local Newark Hip Hop phenom, J Read. You can find the track, "Everything," on his EP titled "The Grim Wolf Sessions"
It was a joy to work with so many talented people, and on such a dope song!

Happy Labor Day! Take a look at the teaser of our latest doc: Shaw Boyz, which follows the groups of Black & Latinx skaters formed after the creation of DC's very first public skate park.

I remember visibly shaking when I first heard Taylonn Murphy Sr. tell this story. The cruelty and lack of empathy involved in how the officer regarded the boy is exactly the sort of trauma over-policing invites into our neighborhoods.
I shoot photography and video for events. And often times, I learn something brilliant from my clients. Here’s one lesson on life..
Here’s another piece, I edited for OkayAfrica: 7 Ways to Headwrap. Had a lot of fun working on this one. Check it out!
