What I’m doing now


Like many people, I’m often asked what I’m up to now. If you’re curious about that too, here you go:

Actively working on:

Caribbean Mobile Innovation

After a few months of searching, I was presented with a fantastic opportunity to impact the technology ecosystem in the Caribbean. It pulls together my interests in technology, business and entrepreneurship and enables me to dive into work happening across the region. More on this to follow.

Consulting

In 2015, I launched my WordPress consulting business, L’Attitude Studios. I have been laying some groundwork for that over the last couple months as I begin to open my doors to clients. I have also started doing some more general technology planning projects.

Writing

Although, I’ve not been doing as much writing for my own blog, I’ve started putting my skills to use, and am doing some ghostwriting, primarily around WordPress themes and plugins.

Learning

I am pretty much always learning something new. It’s a big part of my makeup. Right now, my learning spans a couple areas:

  • Front end web development (through FreeCodeCamp)
  • Timbales (courtesy of Feluké)
  • Project Management for Development (via IADB/EdX)

Ideas I’m looking into:

Teaching

In 2015, I presented at the Edna Manley Arts Conference. Both my presentations looked at the intersection of arts, technology and business, and received great response. Some interest was shown in my teaching at the school, whether for occasional seminars or as a part-time lecturer. I haven’t ruled that out yet. Lol!

Personal projects

I always have ideas that I want to see in the world. I am deciding which one to launch next. The 2 front-runners (both blog projects) are:

  • Sharing the type of material I shared at the conference I just mentioned, so looking at technology and business in the arts.
  • Interviewing people pursuing their passions, especially those doing it on the side or those that have switched careers completely.

“WordPress”ing

I love WordPress and have been using it for over 10 years. I have been looking at ways to become more involved with the community, and finally attended my first WordCamp (Miami – February 2016). As a followup I will be starting a local WordPress meetup. I also need to deepen my learning, for sure, so will be working on some projects to that end.
