At the Half-Way Mark





















This year has been nothing but wonderful blessings in disguise. Although, I am more comfortable behind the scene, I had a desire to perform more and I have. I got my feet wet at Indigo Lounge and from there other projects started to present themselves. now I am performing in May with The Young Poet Society and a play called "Womban" in June.


I've had my ups and downs but I've always managed to see the positive in every situation. People come and go in our lives so we can learn and grow from one another. I have no regrets. It is very important to surround yourself with people who are positive, secure and selfless. There is enough space for everyone to be heard, understood and appreciated in the world. Respect others and all will come back full circle.


I've been putting together events since 2003. So much has changed, yet my vision becomes clearer each year. I feel I have found my purpose: to bring about awareness, activism and education in the form of artistic expression. Honestly, I am letting my heart and my soul guide me. Trusting in the unknown can be scary but I am learning that the universe works in mysterious ways if you allow it.


As an artist, I won't lie, it has been the hardest thing for me to stay committed in doing a monthly event like Indigo Lounge. However, there has been such positive feedback and I have been told from several well known sources that I contributed something different and unique to the L.A scene. That gave me fuel to keep pushing on. I appreciate everyone who continues to believe in this vision I've had since High School.


I plan on producing One-Offs like I used to. One offs are a few random shows/events that pop up from time to time through out the year. I am in desperate need of taking a vacation. Sometime this summer I will take a long awaited hiatus. Moving about the country for a year or two seems more and more of an option to me these days. My thirst for travel, culture, sociology, and the arts remain my inspiration and part of my identity. I hope you continue to follow my journey, wherever I go and whatever I will continue to produce. I'll always promise to give you the best in eclectic entertainment for the soul, open mind and free spirited. I have other projects in development. So stay tuned!

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Greetings,
I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …

The Shift

#urbansoulfarmer grew out of a need to learn my culture and tradition through the migration of medicinal plants and spices. Urban Soul Farmer is also a platform that synthesizes wellness, art and nature. The aim is to sow seeds of wisdom about our past, present and future. Study, research, certifications, observation, workshops, community, interviews, and travel are all part of my process to create an experimental multimedia narrative about my ancestors.

I am continuing as Blaqnomadtales to archive stories of healers, counselors, and underground artists of the African Diaspora. Our stories need to be told by us and preserved by us. The time is now. Stay tuned 2017



I would like to thank Rock Rose a Gallery for donating a garden plot to urban soul farmer. I will be hosting classes every two weeks for demonstrations, hands on projects and community building. As part of  an "art and nature" series, I have been chosen to organize and develop urban gardening workshops including a…
