Tiesha "Ty" Adams is a Director, Writer, & DP for commercial branded content, narrative works, and much more. But above all, she is a storyteller. Born, raised & based in New York City, Ty fell in love with the world of film and video production. She has built herself up from the ground, learning the trade from working on sets such as the 2015 musical drama short, Start-Up.com, the 2017 TV series, Soul Kings, and Spike Lee's 2017 reboot, She's Gotta Have It as well as his 2021 HBO Documentary NYC Epicenters 9/112021½.

Having recently DPed for brands such as Jordan, Verizon and the Cierra Britton Gallery, Ty continues to strive towards having not only her voice heard, but other black voices around the world.

Since young, creating stories was the only way to truly be herself. During her childhood, being a little black girl ALWAYS felt like a burden beyond the walls of her home. Her mother would always tell her how beautiful her skin was, but it felt like a lie every time she stepped outside. Between being bullied in school and relatives showing an obvious animosity for her, she felt as if she was good for nothing. She became voiceless.

Creative writing became her voice throughout her early school years, being everything she ever wanted to be in this world of what seemed like the impossible. It gave her the courage and brilliant idea of becoming a filmmaker. That skilled passion for writing became the backbone of her journey since then; learning and experiencing each aspect of production as a creative essentially led her to the career choice of directing and DPing. Trying to develop her own film style and meaning, her stories that once avoided character race or description, now took on a responsibility to reflect moments in the lives of women, especially Black Women. And she’s more than ready to break through those glass ceilings. Period.

Ty obtained an undergraduate degree in Theatre at the University of Vermont in 2014.
