Art was always my first love long before I ever wanted to “Be like Mike” or be stylish and wear my jacket inside out with my hat backward like my favorite actor. Unfortunately, this love slowly took a backseat over the years as things such as basketball, healthcare and tech slowly began consuming much of my life as I matriculated from Junior high school through the beginning of my professional career. However, I knew that feeling would eventually find me again and that it was only a matter of time. When I started working on this platform I knew that I wanted it to be an outlet for personal and professional growth but with a creative/artistic twist. I wanted to provide an environment that was conducive to networking, collaboration and development across various facets of life while helping others and making a POSITIVE impact in the community. And at the center I wanted art and creativity to be the foundation. As the saying goes, If you love something, let it go. If it returns, it's yours. I guess I got my answer.

Founder of Generation Mastermind
For as long as I can remember, music and medicine/health have played a major role in my life. My love for music started at the young age of 5 when I began dancing with my first West African Dance and Drumming company. The rhythm and instrumentation that I got on the dance floor was something I yearned for, even after I was done dancing. This sparked my passion for listening to and discovering music.

Hair and health along with dance have always been my passions and it is a great feeling when they all start to come together. I am a certified natural hair care stylist and the owner and founder of HairVentionZ providing natural hair care and nutrition services for the last 4 years. I am also a corporate wellness coach providing health & wellness to many prominent organizations. I am very passionate about what I do and client satisfaction is my utmost responsibility. I am using this platform to inform the public and “naturalistas” about the importance of hair and health and how a healthy diet can contribute to the significance of healthy hair and growth. One of my favorite quotes is by the late great Jim Rohn: "Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live."
Ever since I can remember, I have been obsessed with fashion. I worked tirelessly to define my own personal style and developed a passion to help others do the same. My goal is to create a community that encourages each other to draw fashion inspiration from all facets of life; one where its members dress fearlessly and feel comfortable in their own shoes, literally.
I began to study photography because I wanted to improve my ability to capture the feelings I was projecting through my clothing. I learned to communicate emotion through still imagery, which lead to the evolution of my photography style. I work to capture authentic moments that inspire the viewer to feel.
