After raising over 21k via a GoFundMe she created for local artists/friends, wrongfully evicted out of their housing at The Bell Foundry, Emily was asked by Red Bull to document her DIY scene in a new, original project, Baltimore DIY for Red Bull, a short film that she wrote, directed, & edited as a Senior at University.

Watkins (Baltimore-based Writer), and Angela Boatwright (Director of Los Punks).
Sweeter (short film), written & directed by Emily, was a short seen all around the world at film festivals (i.e. SHORT to the Point, Maryland Film Festival Student Showcase, Black Femme Supremacy Film Festival, & more!) Hailed "A Thesis on Black Motherhood" by the Afro, this coming-of-age comedy was told through daughter of a young mother living in Baltimore.
"[Sweeter] splits the difference between candy-colored Charm City quirk and Baltimore’s prolific gritty city realness that too often gets twisted into one-note, post-“The Wire” pain."
- Brandon Soderberg (The Baltimore Beat)
Emily has been interviewed on NBC 4, NPR, WHUR 96.3 FM, & the Mick Betancourt Podcast.
Emily is the creator of 2 original series, a sketch comedy show entitled Marylandia (2014-2015) and a surrealist talk show entitled Art, Sip, & Chill (2016-2017).
