I worked at Home Depot from April 2016 to April 2017. I was fired the day before my one year anniversary (Vacation Pay Denied!), just two days after receiving a raving evaluation where I asked for a dollar raise . But whatever I won’t discuss their shitty management here, we made this cool video while I was there for a nationwide Home Depot contest. I hope you like it!



Vlogs are the new home videos and I’ve been making home videos since I first learned how to use my grandfather’s old VHS camera. One of my first ‘films’ then entitled ‘Four Boys and a Couch’ and ‘Snow Dayz’ now long lost but never forgotten. Thanks goodness we have the internet now, or specifically YouTube.

These are a series of home videos by me ‘These Are Not Vlogs’ a vlog series.


This probably isn’t the most comprehensive list just because I know there are plenty of projects I’ve just ‘forgotten’ about over the years. But I’ll try to keep this as updated as possible.

“An avant-garde horror mash-up that follows a Black woman’s journey in destroying harmful habits. Internalized racism, misogyny and eurocentrism are topics discussed in this fast-paced ‘horror short’.”


This October in Philadelphia during the Eastern State Penitentiary’s Halloween fundraiser Terror Behind The Walls I met Chicago native Monika Estrella Negra; a filmmaker for Audre’s Revenge Films and founder of the Chicago Black & Brown Punk Show Collective. We immediately decided we should work together on future projects and so did. I became the editor for their short film ‘FLESH’.

Monika had wrote and directed this film; this showed through the footage they presented me with. The clips were organized by scene and corresponded greatly to the script. The script was in general an excellent blueprint in understanding the direction of the visuals, which of course made for better editing. They also had the perfect selection of music for the soundtrack to help convey the story; putting emphasis on the main character’s culture and it’s representation in this film via society.

There was a rather tight deadline of two weeks considering Monika had set up a Halloween premiere of the film. And that was actually more like five days for editing because of work at TBTW and elsewhere.; we were only able to work on the edit on the weekend, the ones before and during Halloween.

Flesh was edited on Adobe Premiere 6. We spent that last night before Halloween finishing the edit; and basically all of Halloween day exporting it. I delivered the final export not half an hour before the play button was pressed.

I may not think it’s perfect because every time I see something I made after the fact I will inherently find some mistake I missed or step skipped. However I do think this a wonderful film; relate-able on many levels, shown from a personal perspective not often seen and generally enjoyable. Essentially an all around awesome piece of work.

If you have Amazon Prime you can see the movie for free, or otherwise rent it.
