As soon as I hopped off the plane in New York in 2011, immediately, folks were asking me where I was from. Of course, I said LA and I received responses like, "Nooo, you can't be from the states," "You look like  you got something else going on in you."

They k...

As some of you know September 30th marks the anniversary date of my move to New York from LA. I have made it to my 6th year, living in New York!

I have gone back and forth so many times in my mind, should I leave or should I stay?

And guess what...

I have been a teacher/educator of dance for many years. 

When I was 15 years old, I had my first weekly class.

I don't know if ya'll know but I like to dress!

Even though I know how to cook, I never really enjoyed doing it.

At one time,...

I started painting about eight years ago. 

During my childhood, I loved arts and crafts and would doodle in my notebook, but I started taking it more seriously as I got older. I was going through a tough time in my life and needed an outlet other than dance.

Hey Ya'll!

You know it always feels good to have new headshots taken.

When I went to LA to visit my family and friends, of course I had to hit up my favorite LA photographer, Mike Quain.

I haven't worked with him in years and knew it was time for us to link again.

I love w...

Hey my peoples!

I know I know it's been a couple of weeks since I last published a post, but sister girl has been making moves.

This past weekend was a blast!

Listen, I've been through so many different hair styles and colors, it's not even funny.

Back in the day, as a kid, I rocked the box braids with the burnt ends (well, we called them individuals or dookie braids in LA). Sometimes I'd wear my hair braided in cornrows, esp...

I am so passionate about what I do, it feels good when i'm  recognized for my work.

I don't do what I do for fame or recognition, but if you put in the time, those bonuses can come through and you know I enjoy it.
