Alan Steele, Untitled, 2020

What a beautiful way to burst into 2021 with an inspiring solo exhibition! I’ve had the grand pleasure of befriending Alan Steele. Alan is a humanitarian, poet, very kind, very thoughtful, educated, a lover of international music, and a true artist. It’s so amazingly mind-blowing how he does it, his process, the materials he uses and being able to witness a fine artist in motion. Steele certainly knows how to make space for his art which I know from experience and from other struggling artists a lot of the time is a very difficult thing to do. I really admire…

I Am Little Red is narrated by Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, I AM LITTLE RED, is a 10-minute animated short aimed at children most at-risk for sex trafficking (e.g. foster-care, runaway, LGBTQ, homeless, & adopted children), with the goal of prevention & awareness.

Woman Empowerment at the Vail Film Festival with GMC 2018

Kathryn Bigelow may be one of the most respected female film directors in the entertainment industry. Bigelow’s latest film Detroit blew minds and built so much movement within one’s own soul. I know first hand because I was invited to one of the first film screenings at the DGA in Hollywood, CA.

Speaking of powerful woman, I had the opportunity to meet the all female GMC team in Vail, CO. GMC is all about hospitality, professionalism, quality, education and safety. The Vail Film Festival has dedicated their fest to Woman Empowerment month.

Let’s Juice it up!

I did my first juice cleanse! It was pretty intense, pretty exciting and pretty radical of all the different thoughts I had leading up to the cleanse, during and reflecting after! Juicing helps with nutrients that fast track through the digestive system and provides minerals, vitamins and more!

People and online have so many inputs on cleanses. Personally from my experience, I think it’s best to listen to our hearts, bodies and our instincts. They know best and will know the perfect juice cleanse for you! I did a three day cleanse to start, to test…

Where I grew up no one gave me the language of an empath. I knew nothing of the sort. Did you? My soul spoke to me so deeply but I lacked the thought form matter language to understand a such a way of life and knowing. I love being an empath and as I explore it more and more through this journey of life; I feel an important moment to share with you.

Recently my music partner, who is an empath as well, shared this compelling thought provoking article with me. I had it recorded by Nicky Scorpio of The…


I’m Not Racist

I had the chance to catch up with Nicky Scorpio, Songwriter of the duo band The Sophisticated Psychos. Nicky Scorpio grew up in a diverse neighborhood in the Bay Area. — First-handedly he saw police target African Americans and saw how mainstream culture steals from the African American culture. People want to be heard, respected and acknowledged. Basic human rights. Nicky Scorpio shed some light on some of his personal views on the concept of Race.

In this song Warzone, I’m admitting I have white privilege to get other people thinking and talking about it. …


We wanted to create timeless music that kids can grow up and grow old with; exemplified in the Motown era.

Let’s heal our inner children so that we can stop creating broken homes-Nicky Scorpio

Let’s get into the brainchild of The Sophisticated Psychos.

OK…So, what’s up with the name?

Collectively, we are all intelligent beings, yet at the same time quite brutal on ourselves. We put on masks & tell everyone we’re okay, when inside we all have issues & an internal critic; we are constantly comparing ourselves & have difficulty just being in the present moment. When we as humans allow & give ourselves & others permission to be imperfect, then we can actually enjoy life. We are learning…
