in Kingston, Jamaica where I was born and raised. I migrated to the US at the age of 30. I currently live in Brooklyn, NY . I am a retired professional and I am currently following my life long dream to be a singer / recording artist.
I have a BA Liberal Arts/Communication and a Masters of Arts in Public Administration. I am also the co-founder and President of Society for the Advancement of the Caribbean Diaspora (SACD) and the founder/ director of The African American Caribbean Singers (1992-2003) ( Afro Carib-A singers) . I am also a Chef and I have contributed several Caribbean recipes to the following online publications, NewsAmericaNow, WiredJa, and Caribbean News Weekly. I am also a mentor. I enjoy motivating and inspiring people, especially the young.
I am not only a food lover , I am also a lover of the Arts. My favorite are music and poetry; they are like spiritual medicines to me. I love all genres of music. I also love photography, decorating fabrics and painting still life and landscapes. I enjoy learning basic expressions in different languages and studying different cultures.
My love for music was inspired by my mother and father. My mother sang to my brother and I often while my father took us to various Rum bars across the island of Jamaica and gave us money to play the Juke boxes in the bars.
As a high school student in Jamaica I studied voice. I am a songwriter, poet, playwright and a new recording artist. My dream is to sing in an opera and perform jazz songs. I must say however, that my recent venture into singing reggae has been fun, joyfull, exciting, revealing and beyond my wildest dreams. Because of this experience I decided to write the song "Dream Big". I now believe everyone should dream big and follow their dreams! its the only way to true self-fulfilment and happiness.
