Tired of career milestones barricaded with hurdles of inequity, I left the corporate environment. I established Live Out L!ve as a safe and welcoming space for Black and Latinx women and other underrepresented individuals to collaborate and evolve with a common goal—to help emerging artists make their way to the mainstage.
Live Out L!ve Foundation deepens my mission to help create a more inclusive industry. We provide free live music education, internships, mentorships, and opportunities for Black and Latinx teens and young adults to experience and eventually pursue careers in the live music industry.
Utilizing my resources to help others is what I do best. I enjoy being a healer and support system for others, especially my son Ezra. A proud California native, I have a degree from California State University, Fullerton (Go Titans!). When I am not immersed in Live Out L!ve, you can find me hiking and hooping throughout LA with my son, at movie night, or traveling to explore new foods and cultures.
BEING A BLACK WOMAN IN TOURING AND BOOKING HAD ITS CHALLENGES. I WORKED WITH TOP ARTISTS FOR OVER A DECADE AND EXECUTED SOME OF THE MOST EXTENSIVE GLOBAL TOURS. I WAS DELIBERATELY OVERLOOKED FOR PROMOTIONS, OPPORTUNITIES, AND ECONOMIC ADVANCEMENTS BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF REPRESENTATION, PERSPECTIVE, AND SUPPORT.
