What the world is an “afrodjiak”?
AfroDJiak is a DJ moniker I started using in the 00’s. But, my mama calls me Jamica.
I came up during a time where our elders told us to stick with one thing. Well, I’m SO glad I didn’t listen!
I’m a multi-hyphenate who is part DJ, part technologist, part designer, and part educator.
I love to share my knowledge and opinions on pop culture, black culture, entrepreneurship and the tech industry’s sad attempt at diversity.
One time (at BuzzFeed Camp) I spent a year embedding cameras in accessories to promote citizen surveillance. At another, I deejayed for a major radio station and was named a Creative Ambassador to a city I hold dear to my heart. And, in another-nother life, I worked with designers and engineers to help ship copious amounts of mobile devices, wearables and software at Apple.
These days I am:
Falling in love with Instagram (again) and helping small businesses tell their story there.
Working from home with my baby boy who is gearing up for his first birthday!
And, building something that I named, A Vibe Called Yes, while also DJing, and learning new art skills.
