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.

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
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.
