I am an MFA Student in Writing and Producing for Television at Long Island University Brooklyn. A native of Maryland, I have high hopes that Baltimore will someday become the notorious film hub that Atlanta, New York, and most notably Los Angeles, have become. I have completed several short films, and I am currently fundraising my web series—my work can be viewed at www.ljrprods.com. My dream career mirrors that of my role model, Ms. Shonda Rhimes. My long-term goal is to be the showrunner of a minimum of ten successful hour-dramas in my lifetime. I am also big on philanthropy and organic teams of talent building and growing together, in the vein of Tyler Perry, Tamela Mann, David Mann, and Cassi Davis. I believe you can amaze yourself with what you can accomplish alone—but with the right team, you can and will dominate.
