We’re about hope and love, key ingredients for success.

We do more than public relations. As creative consultants, we help you connect through stories, activities, and food.

You already have the tools. We show you how, who, when, and where!

Your service and customers/clients deserve better outcomes! Let’s examine your brand, offers, and re-design your strategy.

I bring expertise from 30 years professional experience.

About my Business awards: Woman of the Year, Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce; Caribbean Chamber of Commerce as founding publisher of Caribbean American News, New York’s largest community newspaper, with nearly a million readers. New York State Governor’s Public Service Award for Leadership and Excellence at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Certification: I am a state certified woman-owned business.

Media awards: Hear me tell an award-winning story on British radio about a lynching in my family in Mississippi. Produced by Maggie Ayre, the show Strange Fruit won BBC-Radio’s Academy Award and the Prix Europa.

I won two Telly Awards and an AVA Gold Digital Award for producing, directing and writing several documentaries including – From Shanghai to Harlem and Granville T. Woods, a black inventor.

I won two Videographer Awards for Healing Game: Brooklyn-Japan Baseball (Part 1 and 2). The two short films documented a re-imagined culture exchange program. We explored the healing power of baseball as youth from two cultures recovered from two different natural disasters – NYC’s Hurricane Sandy and Japan’s Tsunami.

Genie: Your wish is my command. Genealogy is my passion. I love helping you search and find your people.

Genealogy: My cousins dancing at Club Harlem, 1950s.

 History in Brooklyn: My consulting business started at my parent’s kitchen table. Our Crown Heights brownstone was a station on the ‘over-ground railroad.’ I witnessed America’s largest migration at daily home meals. Amazing people moved in and out of our President Street house for several years! By adulthood, I learned: migration=movement=empowerment= business success strategy!

Nosy neighbors asked the obvious question: ‘Who are those people in your house?” My Chinese-Trinidadian mother and Creole Louisianan father wrote the scripts. Regardless of nationality, color or creed, every house ‘guest’ was ‘family.’ The rest is history.
