Miss Diddy

Icons tend to have more than one title. The Ambassador of LA, CEO, a Marketing/Branding Genius, and an

inspiration to her community; Miss Diddy has earned

every title and more! A true leader of her generation,

Miss Diddy has broken through barriers in a male driven industry from the moment she figured out it was lacking

something... Her!

She currently sits as the Only Woman Promoter in

Hollywood, CA. The capital of the most important force tothis culture, The Entertainment Industry. Miss Diddy

is the rhythm of this city, where she was born and raised.

She is the go-to woman in Hollywood for artists to

showcase their talents, DJs to continue to prove why they are needed in the music industry and street brands to

gain visibility while connecting to the people who keep

them in business.

Miss Diddy has resurrected what it means to party LA style! She is the only female promoter to actively work in the music industry and

promotes at the same time. Just as the great Sean ``Diddy`` Combs and Kenny Burns did. She's the first promoter to implement brand

infusion in nightlife, allowing street brands to host parties and music events. Additionally, Miss Diddy is the first in Hollywood to

consistently gain media attention for her events and the most efficient at keeping it ``cool`` to promote. She got her start doing West

Coast Lifestyle promotions for G.O.O.D. , a label founded by none other than Kanye West. Seeing a way to add sex appeal to street promotion, her and John Monopoly (then President of G.O.O.D. MUSIC) decided to put together an all girl street team, called The G.O.O.D. Girls who

cohosted Kanye West’s BET /Grammy events and much more. They served as the official street team for the company. The success from this

helped Miss Diddy recognize her skill in the entertainment industry while soaking up knowledge as she sat under Kanye West, John Monopoly and Don Crawley.

Taking the knowledge she acquired from some of the most successful in the industry and turning it into her own, gave Miss Diddy the

platform to spread her wings. Since then she has worked with some of the top named executives, celebrities and companies in the

industry. From redeveloping All Def Digital with Russell Simmons, to such clients as Hennessy; this

“GentleWoman” is also the CEO of a premier marketing firm, The Brand Group Inc., and Co owner of a public relations firm,

The People Group, Inc. With many layers to her growing career, Miss Diddy has acquired and plans to retain the title, Ambassador of L.A.
