He has starred in, written and directed several short films for the university such as “The Smiling Man” (2017) and “Grey” (2018). His favorite genre is horror. The tension and adrenaline rush of a well-executed scare, and not a typical "jumpscare", is an addicting thing for him. Creating a coherent and interesting narrative with his own "Caribbean" flair is his goal and he intends to create these ideas with all the help he can get.
