We're almost at the mid point of February - don't blink or you'll miss it. A lot has happened since the year started and I figured it was time to give an official update.
I kind of tumbled into 2017. I'm guessing most of America did too. Normally I would have been all stressed out because my year wasn't planned and I didn't officially go on holiday. However, very timely wise words from a blogger friend, Onica Cupido encouraged me to be okay with going with the flow. Too bad she's one 'i' from having an awesome name :P
Anyway, here's what's coming up in February.
Upcoming Events and Projects
Publishing - Just Be Funny (The Daily Herald's Weekender, Sint Maarten)
February 11, 2017
Champion of my writing career, Lisa Burnett and the lovely folks at The Daily herald created a space for me in The Weekender to share weekly musings with a comedic twists. Just Be Funny is one part inspirational, two parts 'How, Sway. How?' So, if you want to read about dating missteps, employment misadventures, and general Onicia shenanigans, Just Be Funny is for you!
Storytelling - Sex Positive (The Crowd Theater, Chicago)
February 11, 2017
Producer, performer, and storytelling friend Ashley Victoria invited me to share my sex positive story. I wished my story was as risque as Ada Cheng's BDSM experience. Nonetheless it's going to be a great time.

The Stoop is back and we're raising funds for SIQ!

Storytelling - This One Woman (Hopleaf Bar, Chicago)
April 24, 2017
Details TBA in March.
It's submissions season so, don't expect too many shows for March or April. I'll be deep in my writer's cave writing and editing like a mad woman. I'm so serious about completing my scripts that I disconnected our WiFi and placed my phone on airplane mode.
About once a day I'll make an appearance on twitter and my personal Facebook.
Be well, make art, and resist!
Created in St. Maarten. Based in Chicago. I write, say funny things, and enjoy hanging with creative minds.
Here you'll find writing samples, videos of past performances, and off notes about my life as a writer.
When I'm not writing and performing, I help artists get organized. You should hire me to help you produce live events, promote your art, or manage resources so you can make the most of every opportunity.

I like internet strangers. Just you know... be cool. Stalker, no stalking.
