Spotlight Speaker Series
Why did you come to Haiti?
- As a Caribbean American content creator and influencer it was important that I personally attend HTS to support the initiative but also I was hoping to attend a summit specifically geared to the Caribbean and it’s Diaspora. By attending I also hoped to inspire members of my audience and community to attend.
Why is your expertise needed?
- My expertise as a storyteller, producer and influencer via Carry On Friends and Breadfruit Media is essential because Caribbean Americans need, want and should see representations of themselves and the diverse aspects of their culture and experience.
What have you done since Haiti Tech Summit- And how can others get involved?
- I’ve since started Breadfruit Media, a podcasting company that provides strategy, show development and production of stories by Caribbean Americans. I’ve already launched a new show and getting ready to launch the first Jamaican Audio drama podcast, plus a few more projects.
