What has been your favorite role?
I had a lot of fun with all my roles, especially being Reverend Oliver in the “Viola Desmond Canadian Heritage Minute” because of its historical significance and the calm everyone had on that set. But playing the Car salesman in “The root of the problem film” gave me the most to chew on scene-wise. Going back and forth with Sergio Di Zio & Chantal Perron was a great experience. They were both great acting partners.
What do you do when you are not performing?
I like to find great music that captivates me and also find unique areas around my hometown to take long walks around them.
What organization / activity are you involved with or passionate about that people would find interesting?
I’m fairly involved in DJ’ing for a radio show on CJSW on Saturdays. The team I work with on that show is currently developing a organization called T.E.M.P.O. It’s an initiative to empower the Caribbean community in Alberta & beyond.
What Director would you like to work with?
Ryan Coogler & Jordan Peele are two directors I find really interesting and I would like to work with in the future. They’re involved with creating interesting and unconventional projects.
What is your favorite movie and/or TV show?
I love almost every movie to be honest. Pretty much every film is challenging to make and I really respect that. But growing up Will Smith in “Ali” really motivated me to try harder. and currently the TV series “Snowfall” really has my attention.
As a Performer, what is one thing you wish you would have known sooner?
I wish I would have stripped away the notion of fame & pressure being so important to the process of creating a film or tv show. I realize now more than ever that relaxing into yourself & then relaxing into your character role and taking it seriously in that way, is way more crucial than feeling stressed by it or wanting it to be seen by everyone. Each project will do what it needs to do, in whatever form that ends up being. I would tell myself to just be present and satisfied with the work you’re doing. Do the best you can at that moment and move on to the next thing.
