ASL ACCESSIBLE PERFORMANCE
I strive for an inclusive future by trailblazing a new approach to accessibility within the arts & entertainment industry. My goal is not only to entertain but to educate and spread awareness by showcasing diverse individuals in a collaborative approach. As a certified/professional entertainment interpreter, I use American Sign Language while rapping and choreograph ASL directly into the movement/performance. By including deaf performers on stage beside me, I help spread awareness of the need for accessibility, deaf culture/community, language access, and collaborative music/entertainment. I am restructuring the arts & accessibility and paving an inclusive road for artistic generations to come.
