A DC girl

Kayona Ebony Brown is a multi-hyphenate artist, whose journey began with the simple desire to tell stories. So she started the best (and only) way she knew how–writing. After publishing her book, Tenth Letter, and seeing the overwhelmingly positive feedback, she knew she was on the right track. And so… she kept going, finding all kinds of ways to develop her storytelling ability.

Eventually, she whet her appetite for visual storytelling by working on indie films, which led to directing music videos, which then led to her first short, Of Music & Men, for which she wore too many hats to name (even doing the web and graphic work for the project).

Kayona’s entrepreneurial spirit coupled with her artistic prowess are the tools with which she's building the foundation for her career. Through books, screenplays and other stories, acting and speaking, and using her creativity, she’s seeing a career in entertainment and beyond, where her talents will impact this and future generations.
