I’m Brittany J.

Professionally I’m a writer, filmmaker/photographer, and I suppose an accidental activist.

Personally, I’m black, queer, Bipolar (Cyclothymic Disorder to be specific), and in recovery from Bulimia Nervosa.

I know, that’s a lot to throw out there, but there’s a reason to my madness.

My issues are real. They impact my life daily, and there are so many other people who have similar issues who don't feel like they can speak up about said issues without repercussions. I respect that, but I’m also in a position where I've been granted with a gift when placed in front of or in back of a camera, and when a pen is put in my hands. I have a gift, and I'm going to use it. I choose to talk about the negative for the people who can’t, and celebrate the positive to show that those moments exist as well.

I won’t hide my issues just like I won’t hide my lust and love for life. I won’t hide what keeps me up at night just like I won’t hide what makes me excited to wake up in the morning.

I’m located in Central Florida, and you’ll normally see me creating content that dabbles back forth between serious topics such as mental health awareness and current events, and content that has no other purpose than to make us feel good, laugh, and give us a break from the Hell that can be reality.

This is my life. This is my world. It’s not always great, but I’m learning to fall in love with it in new ways every day regardless.

My happiness is my mission.

Creating and performing are my passions.

Watch me make magic happen,

Brittany J.
