WHY CREATIVES NEED MORE SLEEP!

April 16, 2018
creatives need more sleep

Like many of you in the Greater Toronto Area, I spent much of my weekend lounging around and sleeping during this awful Ice Storm. I was grateful (and fortunate) for the opportunity to get some rest. I feel like I’ve been having more and more conversations with people about sleep and the lack of sleep that we’re having. And most of those people are creatives like me! Continue Reading…

NNEKA SHOW 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!

April 4, 2018
Nneka

My online talk show ‘NNEKA’ launched one year ago today. It was such a weird day filled with all the feels. I was so anxious but I also remember shedding tears of gratitude. When I think about the show I feel very proud about what my team and I created…from nothing! It literally came together in 2 months! I finally decided to just do it in February of 2017 then I put my head down and went forward seeking the people and resources needed to make my dream a reality. Continue Reading…

Should I Start Vlogging Again?

April 2, 2018
Start vlogging

The 1 year anniversary of my talk show “NNEKA” is approaching and I’ve been thinking a lot about what the next chapter of that show will be. More on that in the coming weeks. I really haven’t done much video since the last episode of the most recent season aired in February. So in that vein I’ve been thinking about at least doing more vlogging. ( In case you didn’t know vlogging is blogging via video. ) I really enjoy vlogging. Here’s why! Continue Reading…

My IMDB Page

February 26, 2018
Imdb page

IMDB is one of my favorite apps! I watch an excessive amount of TV shows (just binged Seven Seconds on Netflix…majorrrrrr.) I’m always like “where is this guy from again?!” Then I frantically check them up on IMDB. I also have an obsession with identifying British actors playing Americans. IMDB helps me out there as well. And guess what y’all I have an IMDB page too!! I recently actually ‘claimed’ it so I have a picture now etc. Continue Reading…

Make Lemonade Blog Feature

Make Lemonade

Make Lemonade is a Toronto Workspace for Women. I’ve been hibernating recently and it’s always around this time when I start to come out of my den.

Literally two days later the editor in chief of the Make Lemonade blog, Chanele McFarlane, reached out to me for a blog feature! Continue Reading…
