While attending Georgia State University, majoring in Film, Sage began volunteering at the George Washington Carver Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta.

Recently, he assisted club members in creating a documentary of their experiences with the George Washington Carver Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta as well as assisted in the completion of a short film.
