People tend to classify anyone who does comedy on social media as strictly “comedians.” How do you describe yourself?

I consider myself to be an all-around creator. I just love to create in any facet. I make music, paintings, and I do videography. I do a little bit of everything.

Has creativity always been a consistent path for you?

I’ve always utilized my creativity throughout my life. Music and drawing were the first things I fell in love [with], and then everything started to branch off from there.

When did you start doing comedy skits on Instagram?

Before the comedy videos, I started recording dance videos on YouTube. After my first few videos, I became hooked. I fell in love with the process of making videos, editing content, and utilizing various angles in my work. Now, I’m 30-plus skits in, and I’m having a ball with the different characters and story lines that I present to people.

What do you enjoy the most about comedy?

The process of it all. I love making people smile, and knowing that the energy I’m giving out is reciprocated in every video that I create.
