New look. New headshots!
I will share my process before, during, and after getting my new acting headshots.
(Refer to the YouTube video above for image references).
Before I go into the process, let's talk about my previous headshots.
I started acting in my 30s. When I jumped back in, I did my headshots two times before I started to see success. The first time around, I went to a very reputable photographer. The style of the photos wasn't the best for my look and skin tone, being nice and chocolatey brown.
When I first got those headshots and started using them, there was actually a casting director that I saw in person for an audition. When I walked into the room and she pulled out my headshot, she said, "This is hideous!"...

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.

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...

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...
