What the hell is going on with our world? As if a plague, lockdown living, hate crimes, police brutality protests,

sky-rocketing unemployment and murder hornets haven't been enough. 

I wrote Now's the Time a few years ago after a new surge of gun shootings and hate crime killings spread across America. Since then, social media has uncovered many more band-aids placed on systemic racism, police brutality and hate crimes. The wounds are still agitated and the world is calling for change to help stop the bleeding.

As we navigate through these unusual times, racial reckoning is still in order and silence has become agreement. With over 20 years of professional experience in the advertising industry, I have become a brand marketing champion for businesses, leaders and non-profits that want to share their voice and make a difference by just being themselves. One of the ways I choose to take action is by using my social and creative media platforms to help educate, engage 

and inspire others about what they feel is important.

 

I will be co-hosting Marketing for the Curious Activist July 23, 11am-1pm EST with acclaimed marketer, entrepreneur and award-winning author Stacey Ruth. This online webinar in partnership with Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta is not a presentation. It's an honest conversation. Marketing for the Curious Activist is an inside opportunity to harness the power of your personal or organizational brand to generate action. Let’s face it: Racism, social injustice and inequality has been rooted in our society for hundreds of years and now is the time to heal the wound. Learn how ANYONE can create inclusive marketing to create connections where everyone wins. 

I know one song won't save the world, but creative expression gives me peace of mind. My music has a damn good groove and it stands for something.

What will you stand for?

DIY Music Teaches Kids About Music and Care for the Environment By Using Recycled Household Items

 

After the COVID-19 pandemic hit, I was challenged to sustain my source of income for myself as well as help some of my clients reinvent themselves fast. As a multi-disciplinary artist, I also worked as an educator teaching children interactive drumming after-school classes. It was imperative that school parents receive help for their children's meals and education during this crisis. It was also a call to action for me to continue growing my talent in a way that could make a difference.

 

Living a quarantined life for months made me realize the huge number of toilet paper and paper towels that were being used at my house during lockdown. I happened to receive an invitation from Academic Youth Academy to create a virtual class that was teachable for kids stuck at home. I found two empty paper towel rolls while recycling and realized that hitting them together created sounds similiar to the instruments I used to teach kids in person. Hence, DIY Music was born. Had I not surrendered to getting still I may have missed the inspiration that was around me all along.

 

I have currently created over 30 videos available for kids to learn about music and make instruments using everyday items from around the house. Each 15-20 minute video is designed to provide fun lessons that encourages an appreciation music, other cultures and care for the environment. It is also my hope that DIY Music can help create deeper connections and engagement between families and their children.
