As a storyteller, Keiana loves sharing narratives that are unique and help to see through a diverse lens. The type of work that bridges divides to promote understanding and empathy. And she loves amplifying the voices of artists who dare to maintain integrity in their craft and speak out on issues that our society has yet to truly address. Her aim is to make a positive difference in how society views race, gender, socioeconomics, and community with each piece of art that she is blessed to create.
Nashville, TN native with Louisiana Bayou roots, Keiana received her MFA in Acting from the University of California, San Diego, and has been a part of some amazing theatre that include Lincoln Center’s Tony-nominated production of Dividing the Estate, The McCarter Theatre’s Eclipsed, and Center Theatre Group’s The Trip To Bountiful as well as fun T.V./Film projects such as Mid-City Blue, Adult Swim’s Delocated, and NBC’s The Player.
A founding member of Collaborative Artists Bloc and currently serving as Co-Artistic Director, she was a Producer/Assistant Director for CAB’s critically acclaimed production of Gunshot Medley: Part 1 by Dionna Michelle Daniel, directed CAB’s American Saga Reading Series, and played the role of Lilian in their workshop of Zora Howard's STEW. Recently she directed Legacy by Daysha Veronica in the WriteHer Play Festival at Celebration Theatre, Oysters by Carissa Atallah for Rogue Lab 2020, Tomorrow by Carolyn Ratteray in the Ammo/IAMA Pass The Mic Festival, and African Hyphen American by Dionna Michelle Daniel for the TOGETHER LA: A Virtual Stage Festival with Rogue Machine.
