I’ve made it my mission to be a great host to those of you visiting Memphis and staying at My Memphis Mojo. This condo has been a therapeutic, and ongoing, work of art for me. So I get a warm and fuzzy feeling when my guests appreciate the place's eclectic yet homey vibe.
I also get a kick out of greeting my guests personally upon check-in and recommending my favorite local spots in town. All this seems to make their stay a bit more special.
I've met some really great people—and friends—through hosting; and I certainly look forward to meeting more.
With all this positive energy, I’ve since managed to get my filmmaker chops going. My short dance film Bookin’ mixes a Memphis street dance called Jookin’ with ballet to a soundtrack that mixes hip-hop beats and cello…all at a famous juke joint in downtown Memphis. It’s been a hit on the festival circuit in both the US and Europe as it spreads the good vibes of cultural fusion, which Memphis is historically known for.
Throughout, I’ve also been developing a downtown community arts center for my fellow emerging artists, right here in my funky home town of Memphis.
I have a special love for this city. And I now have a love for hosting guests at My Memphis Mojo, which I’ve stamped with my own sort of funky vibe. As you’ll see, it’s decorated with a mix of Southern and Latin charm—just like me!—I may have been born a Memphian, but my blood is half Colombian. Gracias, mamá.
So please come on down to Memphis. I’d love to meet you.
