Before moving to Philadelphia, I had lived in a small town called Hanover, PA. Born to a Jamaican mother and a father from Carroll County, MD, my upbringing was truly a cocktail of Jamaican culture and the simple corn-fed country life. Though we didn’t have much, my parents made sure that my childhood was filled with art, music,  and an endless supply of books. 

Though I describe myself as a writer, artist, and musician, I’m truly a jack of all trades when it comes to anything creative. I’m currently signed to T.I.N.A.S. LLC, where I’ve had the pleasure of working with so many talented musicians around the country. My music is on all streaming platforms under ‘dhluvr’. I’ve also released music with Nate Wolf under the bandname ‘shoeblind’.

Prior to my involvement in T.I.N.A.S. LLC, I ran my own online music and fashion magazine (PHOF MAG). I oversaw a team of writers and had the chance to interview many talented artists such as Dianna Lopez and Shai Nowell. 

Despite being based in Philly, I love remote work. I’m always looking for projects to work on, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re located elsewhere! Let’s talk :)
