About the producer:

Iva McDaniels

I am a published author, playwright, blogger, freelance spiritual and entertainment writer, and filmmaker. As an artist my goal is to create a body of work immersed in connecting us through universal themes of love, life, sensuality, sexuality and embracing your passion. I aim to inspire and move my audience to create from their authenticity. My belief is we all desire a better quality of life and it can be obtained by following our heart’s desire in whatever direction that takes you. My creativity is a divine service to the world and I gratefully share it.

As a freelance community and entertainment writer, I’ve worked with several publications including the first ever urban community newspaper based in South Florida, Urban America. It developed community awareness through urban culture. Sugarcane Magazine, a weekly online publication dedicated to uniting and exposing creativity from Africa and the African diaspora. Additionally, as a freelance spiritual columnist and editor, I’ve worked with the Universal Truth Center’s online spiritual newsletter, Moments of Truth. I created the column Metaphysical Movie Minute which focused on analyzing films from a metaphysical point of view. As a poet, I’ve performed in different venues including the historical Lyrical Café owned by Will “The Real One” Bell and 1310 Gallery Sailboat Bend: voted 2013 New Times Broward Best Art Gallery.
