CREATIVES, CULTURALISTS, PRODUCERS, FASHIONISTAS, STRATEGISTS, ARTISTS, MUSICIANS & STORYTELLERS
I’m passionate about other people’s well-being. Seeing people happy makes me happy, especially if I’ve contributed to their happiness. I love anything Caribbean, from the delicious food to the sound of the music (reggae, soca, calypso).
I love to sew, read books, cook and binge watch shows after the seasons have ended. My God and my children are what I’m most passionate about.
I’m into cooking, traveling, scuba diving and camping. My idea of a fun time is to wander around new places looking for interesting restaurants and bars. I read a lot of political literature, watch old movies and enjoy whisky with good company.
I often analyze the characteristics of human nature from an emic perspective. My leisure activities include aphnology, chess, cycling, crowd watching/surfing, international travel, weightlifting and volunteering at the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.

I started in advertising as a copywriter and won (a few) creative awards. I also have a 4th generation name (Matilda) and my mom named herself —Pocahontas!
I’m a true ambivert whose passion for life centers around one simple cadence — Live hard! Love hard! Laugh hard! Die strong! Tick Tock…
If I’m not buying shoes, I’m binging on Law & Order SVU or mixing up a batch of sangria. I truly love the arts and appreciate a little bit of ratchet hip-hop now and then.
I am an equestrian who has been on every continent but Antarctica. I have a background in global branded entertainment marketing, but my first job was in Kaukauna, WI, selling paper. The most important thing I’ve learned is to be fearless and fail fast so I can learn and try again.
I love to spend time with my family and friends, share new experiences with my daughter and play my favorite playlist as loud and often as I can. Something interesting about me – over the course of 18 years, I have been back to work at UWG three times. Third time’s a charm.
I am most passionate about the care of pets, especially dogs. I am a big advocate for dogs and dog rescues. I donate money and products to various rescues and encourage people to adopt not shop; I will do anything for dogs. I mean anything!

Just a few things I love… Traveling the world. Playing dress-up. Discovering new music artists then falling in love with them, learning all the words to all the songs on all their albums. Reading non-fiction books and fashion magazines. Watching documentaries and historical movies. Dancing everywhere, which includes but is not limited to, in the mirror, at work, on elevators and on the subway. Singing all the time. Instagram scrolling. Music festival hopping. Beach bumming. Boozy brunching. Wining. Dining. Chillin’.
I have extraordinary people skills *coughsometimescough* so you can expect a contagious smile and a big hug when you meet me. As the project management team lead, I love when a plan comes together.
I’m most passionate about bringing arts education to inner-city youth, the music business, and music in general is the fabric of my life. I’m a classically trained Jazz singer, but I fell in love with business so now I’d rather be behind the scenes.
I enjoy spending time outdoors doing activities such as biking, hiking and playing backyard games such as Baggo. I also am a private football coach for high school and collegiate athletes.
I come from a very civic family — my uncle was mayor of Highland Park, Michigan, my cousin is a sitting judge in Highland Park, Michigan, and my cousin is the current US ambassador to Zimbabwe.
My greatest title is Mom and my best assets are my children. I was born and raised in Cleveland (Believeland) with a touch of Georgia Peach to add a little southern hospitality.

I like to collect comics and grill in the summer. An interesting fact about myself is that I am an EcuaRican (half Ecuadorian, half Puerto Rican).
I like cycling, going to museums, and playing fetch with my labrador in the park. I’ve watched the same Dave Chappelle stand-up special over 10 times and still find it funny.
I am always trying to find the right balance between Yin and Yang. My taste in music varies from Classic Heavy Metal to Classical (and other genres in between). I get a joy out of weightlifting, cardio workouts, watching/analyzing sports and being outdoors.
I love to cook and enjoy finding shortcuts and healthy ways to cook my family’s favorite dishes. I have a passion for plants and flowers and have done wedding floral arrangements that included bridal bouquets, centerpieces, church flowers and church decorations.
In my spare time I like spending time with my daughter, shopping, music, and browsing bridal magazines and social media sites.
I am into fitness training, writing, playing guitar and teaching. Something interesting about me — my parents were on the cover of Ebony magazine with two kids that were not related to me.
Chopped is my favorite TV show and Forrest Gump is my favorite movie followed by Kill Bill and the Transformers series. In my spare time I love learning to cook, playing with my puppy, using Snapchat/Twitter/Instagram, and dancing.

I am a certified beauty junkie! I love to try new skincare products and makeup techniques in my spare time.
I clear my mind by hitting the open road on my motorcycle or butchering 18 holes on the golf course. Other passions include documentaries, history and THE NY GIANTS!
I love traveling (15 more states to go and I will have touched all 50), hanging out with my family and bruhs (frat brothers), and watching old school comedies.

At my best, I’m the balance of heuristic and divergent thinking aiming to experience life through the eyes of the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling. In these moments, I experience life and creative in supernova form through many living deaths and rebirths that rises from the ashes like a Phoenix. It’s how I grow and expand my universe. #LiveMore #LoveMore.

I moonlight as a Nail Artist and have given Pamela Anderson a pedicure. As the self-proclaimed President of #TeamTooMuch, I live for sarcasm, internet memes, anything gold and conversing in .gif whenever possible.
I am into sports, gaming, design and tech. Something interesting about me: I think I might be a cat whisperer. They follow me and constantly, when I come out of my front door, there’s a strange cat greeting me. Either that or someone is washing my clothes in catnip.
Never not working! Always on the hunt for new music to add to my “out-of-control” collection of playlists for every occasion. Baseball fan!

I believe that luxury is the simple life and I look to live as simply as possible. If trap music, metaphysics and sophistication had a love child, he would be me — that’s what I like to call, “balance.” So far, I’ve been in two motion pictures, and yet I’m still not famous. #basic
