In The Doll World

In The Doll World: In 2019, Georgette Taylor and I created a podcast designed to connect doll lovers and doll professionals. The show was called In The Doll World(ITDW). Overnight, its intimate interviews with doll professionals broke down barriers between the professionals and doll lovers. The show is now shared worldwide.

My work with ITDW has allowed me to earn a coveted spot as a respected member of the inner circle of the doll community. It also helped me earn the title of Doll Expert.

In 2021, I created the ITDW Annual World of Black Dolls Celebration. The goal was 2-fold: 1) to educate doll lovers about the number and variety of Black dolls available on the market and 2) to help small doll makers increase their doll sales. We interviewed creators of Black dolls from around the world and made a point of sharing lesser-known doll makers. Doll makers thanked ITDW for increasing their sales, and doll lovers thanked us for introducing them to new doll makers.

History

In The Doll World: In 2019, I was approached by a friend and history-making doll creator, Georgette Taylor. Georgette wanted to create a podcast introducing doll lovers to doll professionals. Though Georgette had the idea, she did not have the connections. Georgette and I combined her idea and my network, and we created In The Doll World™ (ITDW).

As of early 2022, ITDW podcast shows have been downloaded in more than a third of the world's countries. We have also interviewed people from every continent--except Antarctica.

My work with ITDW also allowed me to become a doll expert. My specialties areas are collaborations and diversity, equity, inclusion, and empathy.

I am honored to work with doll professionals around the world and to create an inclusive platform that celebrates diversity. My collaborations have led to two annual Black doll celebrations, a Pride festival, writing the foreword for and editing a book by a Polish doll photographer, and many other interactions.

In addition, I have been approached by a variety of doll professionals about collaborating with them or assisting them in locating other professionals to collaborate with.
