"Born in Austin and raised in a small town right outside of the city of Houston, Tia followed in her mother’s footsteps and moved back to the weird city as an adult, for a change in pace. Tia found her creative niche while podcasting and combined her true love for writing and love for people of color to begin blogging about victims of Police brutality, and expanded her storytelling abilities with romantic short stories and screenplays. As a new filmmaker Tia’s goal is to use HER art to tell the stories that help not only entertain, but break down societal norms and highlight Black excellence." Via http://gentrifiedseries.com/
