What do I do?
A lot. I can’t sit still. Even when I say that I am finally going to stop, I don’t.
By day, I am the Associate Publisher for Houston Style Magazine, which is the largest African-American weekly publication in the state of Texas. This means that I get to have all the fun of attending business meetings, various conferences, and continuously learning to stay afloat amongst the ever-changing media world. (sounds fun, doesn’t it?)
In addition, I also serve as somewhere between an executive assistant/consultant for a media mogul that somehow finds 20 more hours in their day to start up and successfully run 10 more business entities.
I do get the opportunity to do fun things!
Because of my work, I often get to travel to various places (and must admit I have been very spoiled with the VIP treatment I receive).
I have also gotten the opportunity to interview some pretty popular people, both in the entertainment industry and the world of politics.
And although I don’t like to write about it because I feel like I am boasting, my credentials have allowed me to attend some of the hottest events in the U.S.
My Happy Zone!
I often talk about Twin A&B on social media. A&B are my very much adult twin sons. It is never a boring day with these two. They call me EVERYDAY. Yes, everyday. Sometimes, 4 to 5 times a day. Anyone else have this problem? (smile!) A&B’s hilarious texts and calls help me the most when I am having one of those difficult days battling Lupus. If you don’t know much about Lupus, please take a moment to Google the illness that mostly impacts women of color.
I love watching movies and great tv series. I can talk movies all day.
As a matter of fact, I am probably watching a movie while you are reading this very text at the moment.
What I am passionate about...
I know it probably isn’t very professional at times to talk about what I stand for but that’s just not who I am. If you are on here, by chance, perhaps looking to contract my services in some type of way, please know that I am all about the betterment of Black and Brown communities. From education, to immigrants’ rights, to advocating for the LGBTQ community, I am here to lend my voice – and I have a pretty loud one at that. So if you, too, are just as passionate about these causes, keep up the good fight, and I hope that one day we can meet!
