About the blog

Thanks for stopping by my blog. As a self-professed coolia, I’m interested in (re)defining cool with readers. Topically, my posts fall into four categories. Most often, I will ask for your thoughts in order to start a conversation. It’s a standing invitation; I welcome you to join me and bring along a friend or two!

Working as a Marketing and Communication Professional

Growing up, I always knew what I wanted to be, less the one year I aspired to be a movie ticket seller. I consider myself wildly blessed to work in a profession that I love, that I care about and get excited by. As the field digitally expands, I can’t wait to see what’s coming next. A banner brand day occurs when I can integrate strategy, storytelling and social media. I honestly dig this stuff!

Seeking Value through Diversity and Inclusion

As an embracer of difference, I choose to live my life seeking and seizing beauty in what’s unfamiliar, contrary and ‘unlike’ me. I’m inspired and intrigued by Other, however it is defined in whatever context. My ardent advocacy for inclusion has blessed with me published work, entitled A Space for Gray and it’s something I enjoy fostering in thought and talk. In this space, lifelong lessons can be learned.

Learning from Travel and Cultural Difference

As a cultural nomad, I choose the journey over the destination. When we travel, particularly abroad, the steps and moments weave a tapestry. Cultural and lifestyle differences take you outside of your comfort zone and bring forward amazing new perspectives. Keep the eyes wide open and move through the fear and apprehension. That’s the key. 

Reflecting on a Slice of Life Living

To be in the moment is a gift; to own those moments is a greater gift. When that a-ha spontaneity occurs, I like to share stories and to hear about your own as well.
