My new hosting + travel expert demo reel!

My new demo reel.

Dear readers,

I’m happy to present my new demo reel!

Without even realizing it, I’ve managed to build a pretty impressive body of on-camera work. Hundreds of hours of vlogging, plus a “gift” for talking people’s ears off aka storytelling, has lead to booking commercials, on-screen interviews with major press junkets, and speaking engagements!
I’ve always semi-regretted not accepting the offer to go to university for broadcast journalism, but 15 years later I’m realizing that the digital age has allowed me to become a kind of new media reporter and producer in my own right. Love that nowadays I’m able to create my own opportunities– all I need is a camera, internet connection, and a captive audience!

I put these clips together and it was fun to see how far I’ve come these last few years. I’m putting it out into the universe that I’d like to do more hosting, producing, and presenting– I want to tell other people’s stories as well as continue to share my own.

Anyway, if there’s any moral to my little anecdote, it’s this: Seize the day. Stretch yourself. Carve your own path. Invest in your dreams. Because the rewards are worth it, and so are you.

Let me know what you think.

    Life is like that sometimes — something you have an interest in comes back later, more organically than if you’d gone to school for it. Same thing happened to me with journalism; I majored in English but didn’t pursue any journalism classes, and now I write for and edit a magazine. πŸ™‚

    Anyway, how exciting for you! Hope many more opportunities come your way.

    I just love your site and what you’re doing! I’m getting ready to embark on my own journey of moving and living over seas in a couple months and like you want to see as many countries and different cultures as possible. Thank you so much for putting all of this together because it makes me, as a black woman, feel more comfortable about going it alone as well.
