Born in the United Kingdom and raised in Baltimore, Maryland via Trinidadian parents, I am a world traveler, multinational citizen, DJ, father, humanitarian, entrepreneur, and activist. I have played music in 50 countries across 6 continents. My musical accomplishments include having multiple residencies in several cities, producing award-winning radio shows on SubFM, creating the first dubstep party in North America, DubWar, and starting a record label, GourmetBeats.
The humanitarian efforts include working with refugee resettlement agencies in multiple cities and program development for justice and equality in Baltimore. I channeled my musical, entrepreneurial, and humanitarian energies into higher education and earned a master’s degree in Nonprofit Management and Social Entrepreneurship from the University of Baltimore and a master’s degree in Intercultural Services in Healthcare from Wake Forest University.
My activism happens through participating in protests and rallies and producing two podcasts (#LiveAndDirectChats and #JoeAndKatChats) that raises awareness about socioeconomic and sociopolitical issues. Another extension of my activism is this new clothing line. I create clothing with introspective imagery, original designs, and inspirational words. One could say the clothing is “merch with a message” yet remains fashionable, sustainable, and socially conscious. The work never stops. The fight for humanity, freedom, equality, and survival continues.
Love is life and life is love.
