Riyah and I

Hi, I’m RJ.

Born in Miami, grew up next to Disney World, and lived in NYC five years before accidentally returning to the South.

Following a career in media, I ventured out on my own as a communications consultant and blogger. This is where I invite others to hope with me as we navigate the indecencies and victories of our shared humanity together.

Although I cover everything from faith and career advice to skincare and pop culture, living among the olive trees is, at its essence, an ethos. A turn-walls-into-bridges, extend-the-table philosophy where we break bread, live freely, and make peace—all with a little bit of style.

You may also find me on Instagram, Twitter, or follow along on Facebook.
