Having started her career in front of the camera, Tamara began her transition to working both angles, with her short film "Exposure" that ran the festival circuit. The film garnered a lot of attention when it made its debut at The Pan African Film Festival. It went on to screen at The Reel World Film Festival, after being solicited by their programming director. "Exposure" was also nominated for a Kodak Award at the Martha's Vineyard African-American Film Festival and premiered in New York at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival. Tamara also wrote, produced and directed her second short film, "Broken" starring April Lee Hernandez and Dorian Missick. She followed that effort, when she created, starred and directed, alongside business partner Meagan Good, the successful web series “All That Matters”, that launched on WorldStar Hip Hop. Currently, Tamara's feature film debut, which she wrote, co-directed, produced and co-starred in, "If Not Now, When?”, is making the festival rounds, after it recently premiered at American Black Film Festival. The film was nominated for the Jury Award for Best Narrative feature, Best Screenplay (for Tamara) and Best Director (shared with Meagan Good)
