There are only two things that make me feel as alive as the smell of sea air in the morning: working with talent and creating entertaining content. I've taken a most non-linear path to get to a place where my love of talent, content, and tropical living intersect and that comes with constantly playing outside of my comfort zone. 

After I graduated, I sold everything I owned an moved (back) to Jamaica to work for a small media startup as a Content Producer for their video division. I produced national television ads for brands like Scotia Investments, Sagicor Group, and Foska Oats. Within the year, I was charged with heading up the company's slate original video content, producing 4 original series airing on national television network, FLOW.

I fell in love with telling Caribbean stories while I was in Jamaica

When I left Jamaica, I freelanced as a content consultant before joining the Digital Strategy team at international non-profit, World Vision. I then spent 2 years at tech company Shopify, helping entrepreneurs build and market their online stores.

In 2019, I founded Isle + Indies, a management and creative services company that helps actors and musicians profit from their artistic product in the digital world. A part of the Isle + Indies mandate is to advocate for and create opportunities for Caribbean screen actors, through community, b/dscvrd.
