My thoughts about New York
Every neighbourhood feels similar to some degree because they’re all make up of the same ‘guts’ – bodegas, dry cleaners, bakeries, liquor stores, cafes & restaurants, dive bars, specialty shops, etc. Yet, every time you move to a new neighbourhood, it’s like experiencing NYC for the first time all over again. The discovery period never ends.

Take a vacation into My life
I’ve lived in three different states and West Africa before I landed on this luminous island. After college at age 22, I knew I had to be in New York. At the time, it was about identifying a place rich in culture that was an extension of my background in ballet & dance. I was seeking a place that was decidedly not homogenous. From what I had observed, New York was the epicentre for art, ballet, music, food, and ethnic diversity. A place where every dance company, theatre troupe, chef, band, fashion designer had a layover or set up camp.
After living in New York for almost 9 years, I’m still fascinated by the novelty and evolution this city creates and procures – in every industry. Identity is always an expression of progression here. Most people have multiple crafts and passions on top of their day-to-day job, which keeps growth constant and challenges them to keep moving forward in their journey.
Reconnecting with my partner & hero – CAL. There is nothing like leaving the day behind and melting into bed with a bowl of ice cream and laughing about nothing. I feel the giddiest at that very moment each night.
People: I love hearing individual stories from multiple chapters throughout people's lives. I get inspired by hearing how people find their way to others, career changes, travel stories, passions, growth, and new experiences.

I just started pottery, and I'm hooked for life! I'm also an avid cook in my spare time, but my dream is to own my own cafe/coffee shop one day, where of course, my pottery will be sold & used.
