” I Create For My Own Joy – and my objective is that others enjoy my creativity.” I began my professional acting career in 1967. In 1973, I studied Theater, under Actor/Director, Bill Duke, at New Federal Theater. I am an Alumni of Lincoln Center’s (Directors Lab). For twenty three years I have directed numerous productions at the M-Ensemble Theater Company in Miami Florida; as well as coordinated and directed their Summer Youth program. From 1985 until present, under the auspices of Dr. Rodney K. Douglas, of the New Day Repertory Theater, I’ve directed and performed in productions such as “Fences” “The River Niger” “The Taking Of Miss Janie”, ” The Caine Mutiny Court-Martiall” to name a few. Currently I am starring in a film production entitled, “The Veil”, written by Leon Pinkney.
