From London to California

California Dreamin’ It has been a very long time since I’ve written anything on this blog. As much as I love writing (I’m not sure if this is present or past tense), for some reason I seem to have succumbed to writer’s block. Either that or the passion I once had for the craft has faded into some kind of obscurity. I lost interest in it a few months ago, when I…

My dream job is actually owning a VR sneaker store

  I may be a sneaker head, but many years ago my dream Job was being a journo for a fashion magazine. Life in my eyes was about living in NYC, working for Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar. I wanted to be in the front row at Paris Fashion Week. I wanted access to an unlimited archive of fashion knowledge. What can I say, I was about that life. Toronto wasn’t cutting it.…

Coding my way to VR

Girl code I’m a content creator. So, I guess that makes me a creative. But truth be told, being a creative isn’t always the most respected of avenues. I say that because it generally gets paid the lowest and is understood the least. While I can’t say I’ve been destitute, or fit the description of a starving artist, I do want more than what being your run of the mill content creator…

Respect a job applicant’s privacy!

I keep harping back to the fact that I first moved to the UK in 2008. Well, it was monumental. I’ve gained a reputation for being brutally honest. Even though I’ve toned down over the years. I’ve come into situations where the slightest I’ve said to a colleague via email has resulted in a ‘we need to have a talk’ consequence. This could very well be because it’s the UK. But don’t…

The importance of Mentorship/coaching

Over the past month or so I’ve been eager to grow. It makes sense, right. I’ve worked at some amazing brands. I’ve gained some truly great experiences, but I’ve wanted more than what was being offered to me. I was tired feeling subordinated, or just wanted to be in a position where I could call the shots without feeling as though I was stepping on other people’s toes. The only way to…

The Project

It starts today. May sound a bit corny, but it is. Part of entrepreneurship – especially within the technology space – is the willingness to execute even if it fails. I’ve parked a lot of my skills for what seemed like other priorities. Working for a big brand is a safety net. I’ve done it for practically all of my life. But even though I have all this experience, it always felt…

From Employee to The Boss

Pumping the breaks This week was interesting. Everything changed very quickly. Monday I was working at one of the biggest companies in the world. Doing something that was ground-breaking, essentially. Then, on Tuesday, I made one false move that turned out to be a fatal decision based on how I felt. Then just like that, it was over. I had to pack it in, and move out quietly. When I was on…

The Coder

Today has been an awesome day. On Monday something happened. On Tuesday I said something that I didn’t realise would change my life. Yesterday, I dealt with the consequences of my choice. Today was the day to decompress. I spent the entire day learning. I spent the entire day at Internet university. I learned things I didn’t have time to before, and honestly, it felt really good. I took on a bunch…
