OK, a bit about me…  growing up with Jamaican and Scottish parents, I was encouraged from a young age to try, taste and experience everything - at least once. I always felt I've straddled multiple experiences, and yet never felt fully part of one - to me, that's nurtured my sense of curiosity, exploration, bridging gaps and seeing opportunities in every new connection.  
As a filmmaker, I'm fuelled by my passion for exploring, learning and helping tell the stories that rarely get told. My work has taken me around the world, from Ethiopia to Chile, Jamaica to Japan, working with championship pro athletes, disgraced superstars, musical legends and communities/organizations striving for change. My Hot Docs-premiered doc on ska and reggae legend Stranger Cole, Ruff & Tuff (with collaborator Chris Flanagan), has led to a series of docs with the National Film Board of Canada on buried reggae histories in Canada (currently in production). 
And at some point during your rush hour commute, you may have heard me (DJ Gramera) on the airwaves during my 15 years hosting StolenSouls: a weekly soul, funk and reggae vinyl radio show on CHRY 105.5FM (and you most definitely got invited to one of my DJ nights).
In 2020 I co-founded Bonfire Originals, a production company based out of Toronto, focusing on unscripted series, documentaries, branded content and commercials. 
Link me anytime, whether an idea, potential project or you just wanna connect.
