Ukairo Ukairo

Ukairo is a multi-hyphenate creative who explores storytelling through filmmaking, music and poetry. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Radio-Television-Film Production from The University of Texas at Austin where he developed a strong passion for documentaries as he saw their power to highlight the voices of marginalized people. The support in terms of community, career guidance and financial aid which he received from ALB gave him a sandbox to stretch himself creatively during his undergraduate studies as he went on to make memorable short films including work that was featured on BET & IndieWire. He is currently an MFA Candidate at The University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts where he is honing his directing and writing skills, this time exploring kid’s stories, the fantasy genre as well as sci-fi.
