Thanks for visiting my site! Happy to be sharing my initiatives with you

I am an emerging Sociologist specializing in critical race studies, critical gender studies, decolonial pedagogy and Black masculinity studies. I am active in community work, educational, and research consultancy to support Black, Indigenous, Queer and other racialized communities. As such, I co-founded the Decolonial Perspectives and Practises Hub at Concordia University and the National Black Graduate Network. I am the project manager for the Anti-racist Pedagogy Project at Concordia, an active member of Concordia's Black Studies Collective, the coordinator of Concordia's Black Caucus and I held the position of student outreach coordinator with the Black Canadian Studies Association for two years.

I am completing my doctoral studies at Concordia University. My project, Black Masculinities in Canada: A Documentary of Black Empowerment and Community Engagement, supervised by Dr. Marc Lafrance, is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship.

Community

Matters

Change requires us to mobilize social justice reform in and out of the classroom. Academia is insufficient without the teachings of grassroots organizers and activists. I am proud to work for, receive support from and collaborate with leading community organizations.

Funding Support & Awards

Sponsors

My personal and academic growth results from invigorating collaborations and teams, dedicated mentors, generous sponsors and humbling experiences with unexpected people and spaces.

 

I am mobilizing my sociological specialization and passions to foster recognition and connectivity amongst Black scholarly communities, developing a theoretical framework dedicated to Black male expressivity and creating learning environments that celebrate QTBIPOC expertise in higher education. I am excited about the connections, conversations and inspirations to come.
