Alias: Shortyrise
From: Philly PA

Ive always been a lover of film. Growing up TV was one of my favorite past times when I wasnt playing outside. Both my mother and father were big movie lovers. We had the biggest collection of movies! My parents allowed me to watch movies that they watched and just told me to cover my eyes if something inappropriate came on. Because of that some of my favorite movies was something you wouldnt think a kid would like. (my mom told me as kid one of my favorite movies was “Pretty Woman”) I grew to love movies that resembled real life situations and people that you can see in your own neighborhood. One of my favorite directors is Spike Lee. Some of his movies he has brought to light what others thought it was better to keep in the dark and made us aware of reality. Because of that I had the urge to create my own visuals reflecting on things that I see and deal with in my own life. I brought my first DSLR in 2011 in hopes to make creative pieces on my youtube channel.

What else sparked from that DSLR was my love for photography. I never liked being in pictures. Even as a little kid to get me to be in a picture you had to sneak up on me other wise Id be crying or hiding my face. With a new DSLR I decided to try out taking pictures as well and fell in love with the fact of expressing myself through still images. Taking a picture and allowing others to see it how I see it is like a high for me. I love that people like what Im doing and fully support it. I love that I can make money doing something that doesnt feel like a job. Thats why I dedicated my life to my owning and growing my own photography business as well as attend a university studying photography.

    The Msanii (pronounced Mu-Sa-Vee) Society was created not only to be a platform for artist around the world but also to be able to have artistic conversations.

    Being a person who is a artist herself (photography, film and music) and a lover of art, I wanted to meet people into the same things as…

    A new project I’m working on. Please follow
