The first episode of Natty Hair Chronicles has arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In this episode, I play a tour guide in the natural hair exhibit of the Museum of Black History. We’ll lead unsuspecting tourists through a funny, satirical look at some of the misconceptions surrounding natural-haired black women.

So happy to be a part of such a phenom cast and crew. I’ve been wanting to be a part of an ensemble for a really, really loooooong time, and I finally got my wish!!

So check it out, enjoy it and let us know what you think. To learn more about the series, visitĀ coleworldmedia.com.

Short clip of me as Lisa in the short filmĀ The Bully (dir. Evan Watson).

I loved this role, mainly because Lisa is so different from any other role I’ve ever played. She’s a really high-strung, urban girl, and I…am not!

I’m really proud of this film. The entire cast and crew was super focused, and it certainly shows in the final cut.

The second minisode of Natty Hair Chronicles featuring ya girl, me, Melissa Jourdana Cole.

Here, we follow a day-in-the-life of Arri (portrayed by Ryan-Ashleigh Reid), a natural-haired beauty who is chastised and misunderstood all day for her natural locks. I am one of her first detractors of the day :)

New episodes of the series drop every Friday! Make sure you check out coleworldmedia.com for more info on the show and cast.

Make sure you check me out in The Bully a short film directed by Evan Watson. In this film, I play an urban girl who just wants to see her best friend Jason finally stand up to the neighborhood bully. If you liked Friday or Boyz n the Hood, you’ll love this.

Video from my Eavesdropping performance 15000 BTU.

In Eavesdropping, Alexa Hoyer randomly collects conversations and exchanges overheard in subway cars across the city. These fleeting moments without context are transcribed into scripts and given to actors before they take the stage. The actors perform, interpret and improvise, weaving fragments of story into narratives of imaginary city life. Eavesdropping is a non-system of storytelling informed by chance and uncertainty.

This is one of four scenes performed by different pairs of actors at the {TEMP} art space in Soho in April. This clip features actors Melissa Jourdana Cole and Oscar Montoya.
