The Backyard Philly Project

Drexel Magazine's 40 under Forty

My 24th year of life has blessed me so much. I am completing my first full feature documentary, "The Backyard Philly Project" which premieres this May, and God gave me wonderful twin boys. On top of all of this, I am honored to be a part of Drexel Magazine's Class of 2013 '40 under Forty' for my accomplishments with Ferasha Films. Thank you all for walking with me on this journey.

The Backyard Philly Project / Official Trailer

I am delighted to announce the official launch of our new trailer for Ferasha Films' documentary "The Backyard Philly Project." After working on this project for two years, I am so excited to finally share it with the public. The premiere takes place this May 10 & 11th at Drexel University, and you can buy your tickets at www.ferashafilms.com on March 18. I hope to see many of you there! Also if you wouldn't mind sharing this video to everyone you know, that would be amazing. Please be our marketers and voice for this film!

Penn Town: a short documentary

At times some call Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, Kill-adelphia. Watch four teens who live in the projects express loss and hope by forging the future with the next generation.

"Penn Town" is a short documentary based on Ferasha Film's (my documentary organization) upcoming documentary "The Backyard Philly Project." I hope you guys enjoy this! The full documentary will be coming out soon!

Twin sisters with baby cousins

This is probably one the most unique photo shoots I have done. It's not everyday you get to photograph twin sisters who planned their pregnancies around the same time! Janice and Jennifer are actually my cousins, and they live in Pheonix, Arizona with their husbands. Since all of the family is here in PA they really wanted to have some photos done before they headed back on the plane. Janice and Jennifer got this photo shoot through my campaign on Indiegogo--raising funds for The Backyard Philly Project, my newest documentary production through Ferasha Films! Thanks you!

My aunt hasn't done this in awhile -- and of course this is a pretty important photograph for her, she's a grandma!
