Born April 15, 1989 in Anniston, Alabama, Garrett grew up with the vision of telling stories. As a child Garrett was never interested in playing with other kids, she preferred to play with her toys alone and let her imagination take her places. In her perfect world, everyone was forgiving and treated each other with kindness and respect. Fast forward to high school, Garrett would discover her gift of visual storytelling through filmmaking. Her work focuses on humanizing people no matter where they are in life. We all have a story to tell, and there is no one story that is better than the other.
Garrett’s stylized blocking, camera angles and movement allow her to get personal with her audience creating a more emotional experience. In October 2015, Garett’s short film Suga Water was nominated for the Best Short Film in the Bronze Lens Film Festival. The Black Entertainment Network (BET) sponsored a special screening. Subsequent, in March 2016, Suga Water was awarded the prestigious title of Best of Festival in the Black Women Film Summit Festival also sponsored by BET.
