Im back … unofficially with



H&M is FINALLY coming to Nashville

I can’t really express my extreme jubilation at this occurrence.  There is no date yet but they will be building a custom space in Opry Mills!!!


I am production stage managing Cabaret for Tennessee Repertory Theatre


If you are in the Nashville area you should come and see it and support your girl.  It runs February 16-March 9 with previews on Feb 14 & 15.  It will be extended through March 16 and may be extended further.  I would be a great Valentine’s Date Night Event and its cost friendly.

I have also started teaching part-time at my undergrad MTSU

I am not longer blonde and am officially a red head! At first I have to admit I wasn’t feeling it, but I do love it now.  I used a Ion’s Demi Permanent in Dark Copper Blonde. Demi permanents work best when coloring lightened hair.  I used two boxes and a 10 developer.  Never use more than a 10 developer with a demi permanent.

This is a twistout that I installed on Saturday Night.  I blew out my hair last week and wanted to keep as much length as possible so I only used a small amount of Hydratherma Natural Daily Growth Lotion on each twisted section. I untwisted and fluffed this morning.

Water Mother Puppet at SunFest 2012 A Celebration of World Cultures

I produce a festival in Dowtown Silver Spring, MD called SunFest and this is our 3rd Annual Year. It will be held Sunday, June 10, from 1pm-6pm. As a part of my personal mission for this event I seek to give opportunities Black Owned Business’ and Peformance Groups, and students who may be interested in learning Live Event Producing.

Last year was a great success and I am hoping this year that my reach will be able to extend even further.  So I am reaching out to those in the DMV area and beyond.  Last year one of my favorite vendors Featherlicious came all the way from Philly with some of the fiercest earrings and accessories on the East Coast.

SunFest 2012 Call for Vendors

I am looking for

  • community service organizations
  • natural hair/products vendors
  • eccectic jewlery and fashion vendors
  • green vendors
  • fun food vendor trucks.
  • If you don’t fit into any specific category please don’t let that keep you from applying.  I am looking to offer a diverse, ecclectic, hip mix of vendors.

SunFest 2012 Call for Performers

In the way of performance group,s this year I am looking for some young fresh local DC talent that might be using a mix/fusion of different styles of music or are preserveing or reviving DC performance styles and also a World Fusion DJ.

I am also looking for performnace groups that perform traditional material the belonging to a specific cultural group.

SunFest is a Celebration of World Cultures that encourages cultural exchange while supporting and fostering the diversity that exists within our local and world communities. This is not only a chance for you to come a learn about the cultures of others but instead a chance for us all to engage, share, and spread the knowledge we possess.

This is a great event for exposure last year we had a turnout of over 8,000 individuals and all of our performance groups are paid.

If you are not able to participate as a vendor or performance group I ask you to please attend its a great family friendly event along with our two perfomance stages there is also a Kids Zone Area with arts and crafts and water play on the Silver Plaza.

and while I know its Chocolate City and Black folks doing big things here is more common than not (you’d be surprised), I am the first Black Employee at the organization that I work for, so doing this event means a lot to me. So if for anything come out and support me and what I am working and striving for, for our Black Community and Communities of Color.

SunFest 2012 Call for Volunteers

I am also looking for volunteers for this event. So if you know of a young person (specifically young persons of colors) who might be interested in planning events, theatre, the arts, stage mangaement, and producing this is a great event to gain some of that experience. Montgomery County Students can get their community service hours by participating in this event.

If you are simply interested in cultural exhange, and exploring the many diverse cultures that are represented in the DMV area this is a great event for voluteering and really exploring the community performance culture here in DC.
