About

I  am the contemplative diva.

I see. I write. I serve.

I do not apologize for Being.

I was born in Washington, D.C.  I grew up with three sisters and two loving parents. I was a good child. Smart and outspoken, God-fearing and wild.  After graduating high school with honors, I moved to New York to complete my undergraduate studies in NYU’s Department of Media, Culture and Communications. I fell in love with the city.  I educated myself all day, I danced all night, I grew dreadlocks, I traveled to exotic places, I broke rules, I honed my voice.  I grew up.  Some years later, I found myself driving west in my Jeep Cherokee to pursue a master’s degree in Theology and Art at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA. Seminary was a soul-altering experience. I was introduced to spiritual disciplines I never knew existed within the Christian tradition.  I met a God who loved and accepted me deeply, and radically. My heart opened wide. Upon completion of my seminary program, to further my ministry vision, I enrolled in a three-year spiritual direction training program facilitated by the Spirituality Center of Mount St. Mary’s College in downtown Los Angeles. I practiced yoga, I educated myself about the healing benefits of essential oils, I volunteered, I wrote songs, I began to work in entertainment, producing docu-series for a faith-based entertainment company. I love people, I love to hear their stories, I love to share their joy and pain.  I like to be still, I like to read and write, I like to sing in holy places, I like to dance like nobody’s watching, I like long phone conversations, I like playing with friends, I like living near the ocean, I like noticing God in the most uncommon places.  I like to find the sacred in everything.
