Advancing as a Producer - A Personal Career Update!

First of all,

Thank you for joining me on this journey of dream-catching, entrepreneurship, and more. I love you!

The past two years have been quite the evolutionary transition for me as a leader in the marketplace. 

I have up-leveled so many ways, and I'm so pumped to continue inspiring you to be the best version of yourself.

And guess what...I just finished 6 Months of Advanced Producer Training!

This was like going back to school full-time.

I had teachers, mentors, and meetings with Executives at Canadian Broadcasters.

The pressure was on, and Imposter Syndrome was high, but I got through it successfully.

Now, I'm positioned to start making million-dollar movies. Whoop!

It's still a little surreal, so I'm just approaching this as an innocent child playing in a jungle gym.

I am safe to play as big as I want. 

Thank you to the OBAC (OYA Black Arts Coalition), Black Women in Film Canada, The Ontario Arts Council, and The Government of Canada for this generous...

Becoming an Actor, Producer & Creative Entrepreneur

I'm on my 10th anniversary since I started and registered a business in 2010, and now it's 2020, 10 years later, and I'm going to share with you my entire journey and some tips on what I would do differently.

It was not what I wanted to do with the rest of my life because I had a degree in religious studies, and I didn't know what to do with it. I'm a coach by profession right now, and I was always fascinated with the universe, God, and spirit. That's why I studied religion and different cultures, and philosophy was a big part of my studies.

When I graduated, I was like, "What do I do?" My options were to become a pastor, a minister, counsellor, family counsellor, and all of these things I did consider, but all didn't feel right. At the time, my mom struggled with a mental illness, and I supported her that way. My high school sweetheart and I...
