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

I am a doctoral student of Sociology at Concordia University. My project, Can Black Masculinity be Decolonized: A Documentary of Black Empowerment and Community Engagement in Canada, supervised by Dr. Marc Lafrance, is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Joseph-Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship.


I am an emerging Sociologist who specializes in critical race studies, critical gender studies, decolonial pedagogy and Black masculinity studies. I am active in community work, educational and research consultancy related to QTBIPOC - Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous peoples and other racialized communities. In such, I co-founded the Decolonial Perspectives and Practises Hub at Concordia University and the National Black Graduate Network. I also represent the Black Canadian Studies Association as the Student Outreach Coordinator and am an active member of the Black Studies Collective at Concordia.



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 that I proudly work for, receive support from and collaborate with.

Attend an event and connect with scholars, students and community organizers with a shared vision for solidarity

My personal and academic growth is a result of invigorating collaborations and teams, dedicated mentors 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.
