I was born in Newark, New Jersey, and nurtured in Georgia and North Carolina. I graduated with honors from University High School, then went on to obtain an Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Essex County College, and a B.A. from Rutgers University in Television and Media, with a minor in Social Work.
I have had leading roles in stage plays such as Poor Girl Rich Girl, Newlyweds, Man of the House, You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide, A Piece of Me, Love’s Gonna Get Ya, Church Folks, Cooking in Yesterday’s Grease, Best Kept Secrets, and Looking For Love; and independent films, such as A Piece of Me, God is Calling, and A River Runs.
Presently, I enjoy voice-over work, script writing, and promotional grass roots efforts to advertise for companies such as Stuart films, Newarkiff, Body Language Productions, and the underdogs of the east coast. I currently Co-host & Co-own the “AIRITOUTSHOW” a Cable, Radio movement and YouTube show currently housed on DTFRADIO and SCRATCHVISIONRADIO.
Over the course of several months, a team drew from the real life focus groups of true life situations with the men in their lives. Through open discussions I helped create the dialogue within the story. This project gave me the opportunity to Cast, Write, and Direct several scenes. I am forever humbled by the chance to make a difference in the lives of our viewers and participants.
AIDS awareness is very near to my heart. I’ve watched family; friends and several people in the community lose their lives. So when I was given the opportunity to use my voice as a script writer, and my skills as an actress, I jumped at the task. This wasn’t a job. This was an opportunity to work with a grassroots effort to give these women a voice often ignored.
