As the only child of the first Black family (replete with a facade of the Cosby Show and a reality more similar to Breaking Vegas meets Breaking Bad, but you know... Black) to move into our charming, colorless Delaware suburb, my fascination with human relationship dynamics and cultural identity developed early. It's the foundation upon which I write and seek to inform my acting work...exploring how people function and thrive despite the absence of a tied-in-a-neat-little-bow reality.
