A published author at 8 years old, writing is where Toni started. Directing allows her to tell stories and Producing allows her to make things happen. Photography is a passion that feels more like giving because Toni loves making people feel beautiful. In her latest project (Potty Break), she steps in front of the camera as well as behind it as the writer/director/producer and songwriter; a journey that was challenging but worth it.
Through some freelance and some through her Boutique Production Company, Hamilton & 5th, Toni's clients include Pantene, AOL, Barnes & Noble, Kmart, AT&T, The Nicki Minaj Collection, Clinique, A&E television, Tyra Banks' Type F, and Wacoal. Toni has worked with Taraji P. Henson, Rob Lowe, Fab 5 Freddy and Ava Duvernay. It was Ava who named her Vibe’s Next Female Filmmaker.
Toni co-produced and co-starred in the Gotham Award nominated film, "August The First". Recently and was selected by the NYC Mayor's office for their MOME film finance lab.
Toni has always stayed true to her New York City roots. She has lived, studied and/or worked as a model in four different countries which has allowed Toni to have an openness to life, appreciation for aesthetics, and a curiosity for different cultures and people.
Her web series, Potty Break is preparing to launch in 2020.
