From high school drop out to university professor, native Detroiter Ka’ramuu (pronounced kah-rah-moo) earned his reputation as a self-taught creator of independent short form cinema before earning top honors at AFI Conservatory. His graduating class was ranked #1 film school in the world by HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. His AFI thesis film SALVATION ROAD was acquired for distribution by HBO in addition to garnering a bevy of awards, inclusive of the DGA JURY PRIZE. At heart, he is a guerrilla filmmaker with roots in NYC theatre, evidenced by the dramaturgical core and classic precepts of character and conflict in all of his work. Kush flows seamlessly between the worlds of theatre and film by maintaining work in both. His award-winning work as an actor and/or director has screened to millions, touring internationally in film festivals including CANNES, SUNDANCE, HAMPTONS, TRIBECA, PAFF, ABFF, LA FILM FEST, HBFF and on the CBS, BET, HBO and CINEMAX networks.
He is also a LINCOLN CENTER THEATRE Director’s Lab Alum, NEW FEDERAL THEATRE Artistic Associate, 2ND STAGE THEATRE Van Lier Directing Fellow, NBC Directing Fellow and ABC/DGA Directing Fellow finalist.
Current work includes numerous writing/directing projects and acting when the spirit moves him.
