I'm Speaking at Creative Mornings in Oakland!

UPDATE: Watch my speech below!

***Listen to my podcast about anxiety***

This Friday, Jan 26th I will be speaking about living with anxiety challenges and mental health for Creative Mornings. I HATE anxiety. Hate it. But my love for stopping mental health stigma by sharing my story is stronger. I'll also talk about facing our normal, everyday anxieties.

Registration opens this Monday at 11am. They go quick so make sure you sign up ASAP.

Dreaming and Hooked on Andy Allo

My blog hasn't blown up yet, but it's getting there. One of my favorite artists who I KNOW is going to blow up is Andy Allo. I don't feature artists on here if I don't think they're special. Andy is super-duper-crazy talented and I play her CD UnFresh when I want to mellow out. Trust me, between hustling a blog and pitching news stories, I need to mellow out often. One day Andy will be touring with the likes of Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, The Roots, Maxwell etc. See for yourself in her latest video "DreamLand" featuring rapper Blu. And peep her earlier-released video of one my favorite songs from Andy's album, "Hooked."

That beauty of Andy's you see on the outside is just as radiant on the inside. Check my interview with her here and you'll see what I'm talking about.


  1. Andy Allo is amazing! I can't wait to hear her live sometime.

  2. @ Heavenly--I love her music too! She's a great artist and I'm sure she's sounds great live. Thanks for your comment.

  3. Is she fabulous or what? I predict greatness for this sister! I have to share on FB. Thanks!

  4. @ Lorraine--She is awesome and has a good head on her shoulders. I interviewed her and she takes her art seriously. Thanks for posting info about her on FB. Also, read my interview with her. She's from Africa and has an interesting story.
