you’ve already tried to internet stalk me a little bit. And I’m not even mad at ya for that! I’d do the exact same thing.
But I figured I’d make it a little bit easier for you, so you don’t have to try and piece information together from my Instagram and Facebook pages. Ha!
So let’s get right into it:
# 1: I own a pair of “Scarface” pajama pants, that I’ve had since I was 16.
Let me explain.
I know what you’re thinking, what teen girl back in the 90s (yes, the 90s) lists “Scarface” as one of her favorite movies.
Al Pacino in “Scarface” teaches us all a valuable lesson: The ‘American Dream’ is a bit flawed. And when we chase that as fulfillment solely, it leaves us empty and possibly paranoid, ending in somewhat of a dramatic fashion.
So naturally, my dad found me “Scarface” pajama pants and gave them to me for my birthday, and I’ve had them ever since.
#2: I love going to the movies by myself.
Maybe it’s because I grew up as an only child, but I relish my alone time. I also just love getting lost in a story and having time to process it all.
#3: Tom Hanks and I have history.
I had to do impromptu voice work at a gala event, years ago, from behind the stage: “Ladies and gentlemen, it is now time to take you seats. The program will be starting soon.”
I said this several times before the event started.
Someone behind me, said something to the effect of, “That’s good work right there. Such a nice voice.”
As I opened my eyes (because I had closed my eyes prior, in an effort to concentrate) and turned around to thank the person, I just stared blankly.
It was Tom Hanks!
I mustered up a Thank You. He smiled and said something nice back, of which I can’t recall because #SHOCK.
The last thing I remember was walking away with my eyes as wide as saucers.
#4: I have seen the John Hughes movie, “Somekind of Wonderful” more than 20 times…
Yes, I’m a sucker for 1980s romance…
#5: My first job was working at a baseball stadium.
Baseball will always have a special place in my heart!
#6: Denmark is one of my favorite places on the planet. (Zambia and England are a close second)
Ha! I mean, what kind of list would this be, if I didn’t tell you my relationship status. #Priorities.
I mean. That’s the only reason why you’re not seeing romantic photos of me with bae. Because trust—I’d love to share. But we will see what God has in store for the future!
#8: My first television internship was in 1998. For extra credit, you can click the link here to see what show it was: LINK.
#9: Brownies are my favorite food group.
As the saying goes, “I’m somewhere between a juice cleanse and a donut for dinner.”
#10: Together Good Co. almost never happened.
I never had any intentions of starting a small business.
But one morning, after prayer, I woke up, and started writing a bare bones draft of a business plan. I had no idea that it would become Together Good Co. But I’m so glad it did!
With that special moment in mind, and all the encouraging voices: from producers to family to publicists and marketers who told me, over the last decade, I should highlight my services in a structured way-- in 2017, I finally stepped out and did it!
And here we are!
