Today At Apple, New York

In 2020, I led a sold-out photography fireside chat, keynote and workshop at Apple Fifth Avenue in New York City with The Creative Collective NYC

My conversation with founder Imani Ellis was about my growth as a photographer since picking up the camera for the first time in 2016.

For my 40 minute keynote and workshop I challenged my creative peers and attendees to break the classic rules of photography to create more compelling portraits.

In 2019 I was chosen alongside five other creatives to represent Jordan Brand at Paris Fashion week. 

While in Paris, I participated in the  23 Engineered apparel in-store campaign. Shot by Kwabena Appiah-nti
