What countries can you go to with a Jamaican pasport

2018-03-23T22:32:35+00:00March 16th, 2018|Categories: Asia Trip, Caribbean Exploration, Chocolate Bourdain, Culture, Euro Trip, USA|

For quite a while I've had a Jamaican passport. Having a US Resident Card (green card) is great for living and working in the United Sates but you're quickly reminded your are still Jamaican when you want to make a spontaneous trip. The Formalities and paperwork involved with obtaining a visa for many countries, [...]

So I'm finally back in my happy place. This little island called Puerto Rico (it's surrounded by water apparently). But there's a problem. My doctor (cardiologist to be specific) is MIA like the other 6% of the population that left after the hurricane and this sedentary, avocado loving black 30something needs his pills! Now I [...]

#currentsituation Ocean Park - Puerto Rico Ever since I've remembered myself, I have always been a massive fan of Electronic music. Sure I'm also a massive fan of dancehall and Reggae but that doesn't take away from my EDM passion. I've been to electronic music festivals around the world and have the privilege of calling [...]

TARGET MARKET

2018-01-28T12:35:40+00:00April 24th, 2017|Categories: Brain Farts, Marketing, Technology|

For quite a while I wondered if my ‘ambitious’ target markets were realistic. Entertainment, E-Commerce, Streaming Media and Social Media Marketing all seem like they should be 4 separate fields of expertise. Boy am I happy I stuck to my guns. Defined on my whiteboard and branching off to similar clients needs has proven to [...]

2018-01-28T14:57:45+00:00April 24th, 2017|Categories: Brain Farts, Forever Learning, Marketing, Technology|

Right now im doing a UX course on Udemy and im learning a LOT about color theory, typefaces and general design. I thought I had a general [...]

TOO MANY ACCOUNTANTS AND LAWYERS

2018-01-28T15:08:32+00:00May 11th, 2016|Categories: Brain Farts, Culture, Future Thinking, Technology|

Too many accountants and lawyers . I was scrolling through Facebook when I saw a trending (among my Jamaican friends) topic that the government of Jamaica notes that the country had TOO MANY accounting and law graduates. That pissed me off. Royally. I understand that not everyone may have the skills to be a hotel [...]
