My goal is to spend the rest of my life having conversations with fascinating people and sharing their stories on television and online media, I’d be living with purpose and living my passion.
Making people comfortable and getting them to open up on camera comes naturally to me. I love putting my guests at ease and drawing them out so that there is an instant connection with viewers. I’m seeking the right opportunity to put my skills and passion to work as a TV producer or interviewer.
I’m an energetic and creative person. That helped me get the Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on my television show and was one reason I was able to interview Miss America 2012. I don’t give up and I don’t fear failure – I’m never afraid to try; this is why I have the reputation of being a tenacious dare devil with a great sense of humor.
Conducting interviews and producing TV shows is energizing. For three years, my Jennylyn Show which broadcasts in three cities in the San Francisco Bay Area encourages young people to make the best choices with their lives. By carefully selecting successful people to interview who then share their personal messages, I help kids see a path to set their own goals and avoid falling in with the wrong crowd.
I was educated in Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, then lived and traveled in quite a few of the Caribbean islands before immigrating to California in 1986. I was involved in the Guyanese political arena at a young age and wanted very much to change the world, but discovered I enjoyed being on stage more.
Growing up in Guyana in a small town on the Venezuelan border with no television station, it is surreal that I am now producing, hosting and editing my own very successful television shows and media content which shares the message of the positive change I wish to see in the world. I create an approachable, personal narrative that causes people to say, “Hey, those people sound just like me, and I would like to know more about them.”
