Me.

Educator.  Entrepreneur.  Queen Mother.   Revolutionary.   Vocalist. 

My Mission.

Partner and collaborate with local entrepreneurs and organizations to curate high quality experiences and businesses.

Create space for and celebrate Black and Indigenous communities and cultures of Seattle through these partnerships.

Create opportunities and seek reparations for those communities to control, manage and own space and land in a city that was colonized, redlined and rapidly gentrified.

Honor our elders and ancestors by continuing to build on the foundation they laid for future generations.   

My Values.

Let young people lead.

Protect young people.

Art is healing.

Sing always.

I believe in and live my life in alignment with The Covenant and The Ten Point Program.

Background & Experience

2017 - Present

Partner & General Manager

Black & Tan Hall LLC.

Inspired by Seattle’s Black & Tan Club prominent in the 1930s, the new Black & Tan Hall is a cooperatively-owned performing arts and restaurant venue which seeks to maintain Rainier Valley as a destination for cross-cultural arts and education events. Historically, Black & Tan clubs offered a haven for people of all races in an era when segregation dictated social boundaries. B&TH embraces that inclusive ethos while celebrating Seattle’s rich music and arts history.
