Blasted Off 🚀 We co-hosted a 420 Party in BK & More
The last few weeks have been NON-STOP! I think I have finally managed to come up for some air, and I am extremely thankful.
My cofounders and I cohosted ‘High Noon’ a 4/20 celebration here in New York with Cannaclusive. The feedback has been awesome. We were oversold — tbh I was, and still am completely humbled that people spent their hard-earned coins to vibe with us. To be held in such high esteem and then deliver on that is an awesome feeling.
I also spoke about cannabis legalization and business opportunities over at The Grapevine. Check out a clip below. You can watch the full episode here. And I was featured in LifeHacker’s ‘How I Work’ Series. You’ll be able to see pics of my office and I share a “typical” work day.
Cannabis Gone Global
The cannabis conversation is global and it’s fascinating to watch. One of my favorite waves is in how people gain access to quality controlled cannabis. Canada is one country that allows online ordering. You can legit, buy weed online. I remember the first time I went to Canada, by way of Buffalo, NY. To be so close to Niagara Falls and not visit would have been shameful. So I happily walked myself across the “boarder" and explored.
The drinking age was 19 and I took my little coins and had my first legal drink at a TGIFridays in Ontario and it was glorious. Since then I’ve grown and prefer my herbals for relaxation and stimulation. I also love convenience, so having the ability to order cannabis online and have it delivered is very enticing. Perhaps it is time to move to greener pastures?
Over the last few months I have been doing more background work. I’ve filmed for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Deuce and I finally got on Succession! A HBO show that I live for!!! By the grace of God I did my first photo-doubling, which garnered me a waiver for The Good Fight. Even though I am SAG eligible, it felt good seeing what that sag bag looks like! This and speaking with other SAG members has me rethinking my entire acting career and strategy. From my vantage point it seems like the move is to join SAG.
Can you guess which set the pics below are from??
Last week I also ran into myself in the subway. A museum used our promo from 195Lewis to promote their upcoming events! I was stunned, do you hear me, stunned.

Well, well, well after all these years. Look what we have here. @195lewis promo inside one of our glorious NYC subways! I was leaving a BG gig, minding my damn business and noticed something familiar...my side profile 😂. Thank you @accordingtofon for reminding me that this was a true NY moment and that my dreams are indeed coming true. Check out the series at 195lewis.com 🙏🏾🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #moma #subwayart #195lewis #actingislife #actresses #womanpreneur #queergirls #femmefatale #faithfocusfinish #webseries
On one hand I was so excited to see that this show still has legs, considering we filmed this legit, years ago. On the flip side, I am concerned that we still don’t have a mainstream show about women of color and their queer experiences. Da fuck? Hollywood really needs to get it together.
This week I’ve got to submit a callback audition and I am hoping to be off book by tomorrow, no later than Friday. I really enjoy this script and want to increase my chances of landing the part which will be filming in Vermont over the Summer. So getting off book asap and making the character my own is crucial.
Speaking of Summer, I am working to get my mind, body, and closet together.
I was fortunate the other day to get a MUCH needed massage, it was glorious! I am looking to incorporate more self care via body work into my life monthly. There really are no words to express the gratitude I have for my masseuse Susan from Better Body Solutions. She helped to unleash so much pent up energy and got some tough as nails knots out of my shoulders and upper back. I am feeling so much better since laying down my cross. lol
