As an emerging media production company, we show resilience and encouragement by making sure you have a picturesque moment. Le Concrete Sunflower provides services and products with elegance —something that my parents would be proud of. We furnish truth and courage by showing images from a riskier perspective.
Growing up, I always had some form of a camera in my hand from disposals as a child to filming with camcorders during my free time in the U.S. Army. While in the military, I realized that art has many forms which is why I pursued a B.A. in journalism from Columbia College Chicago. That’s when I fell in love with video and film production. After finishing undergrad, I developed a deep interest into how exactly media works, so I dived into an M.S. in media management from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I focused on documentary production, media literacy and the definition of media .
After finishing school, I found that it wasn’t as easy as I thought to follow your dreams your dreams with reckless abandon, but I did it anyway. I took the courage that I developed from being in the Iraqi Freedom War and I applied it to my life. This is the essence of what Le Concrete Sunflower is all about.
The name Le Concrete Sunflower derived from the Creole side of my family and the sunflower was the favorite flower of my late-great grandmother. The sunflower is a wildflower that can grow anywhere. It always faces the sun, so it is always praising the Most High. The concrete from which it bursts represents pushing through life’s hurdles and coming out victorious.
Once we acquire the valiance to follow our dreams, we are breaking through our own concretes and shining bold, bright, strong and as beautiful as a sunflower.
