Neil aka Joy Juice

In a nutshell: With an absolute love and appreciation for people, sports, parties and places, the use of photography has helped me capture as many moments in my life as possible. And if you know what 'Joy Juice' is, well, it will give you some indication of why I am always smiling.

After leaving Trinidad and Tobago to attend university on an athletic scholarship, the only way to remain close to home was to either cook Trini favored dishes, look at the photos I brought from home, read the Trinidad Express or Guardian, send for; sorrel, tamarind, salt prune, red mango, chilli bi bi, mauby bark, cheese, Kiss cake, goodie, kurma, kuchela, Crix, Bourbon biscuits, Orchard, Ramsaran's juice, mango chutney, chiney sausage, Catch, Bongo, Cheers, Ping Pong etc. from Charlotte Street, play rel Soca music every day and tick off my roommates, or ...... visit TriniJungleJuice.com to see what's going on.

After my four year stint at college, I fell in love with coaching the game I played all my life ... Football (Soccer) and am now the Asst. Coach at a Collegiate program as well as the director a soccer academy. As a result of a passion for both soccer and photography, the two were combined and made a great addition to my portfolio. Linking up with Trini Jungle Juice gave me an opportunity to explore photography some more and keep the Trini vibe going amongst some good friends.

Atlanta Carnival 2011 Parade Review


22 Years of any event does not come without commitment, patience, great management and having a great team in place. This year, the 23rd showing of the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival was no different. Headed by elected President Patricia Henry, the ACCBA put on another fantastic event in downtown Atlanta. Masqueraders donned the streets in their costumes and glitter, wearing huge smiles in anticipation of jumping to the 2011. The thousands of bystanders were treated to good music and an introduction to what a Carnival celebration looks like. The event culminated with a concert at the festival village (Cor. Auburn Ave. and Hill St.) that included the likes of famed band Burning Flames.  

A long standing Atlanta event, the 'Atlanta Jouvert' lived up to it's hype for the 2011 Atlanta Carnival. Titled V.I. Wuk Up vs Trini Fete....This party was one for the ages. With DJ's representing both sets of Islands, the party goers did not for one bit, starve for music selections throughout the night. And though Jouvert, (A French term meaning 'The Beginning') is a form of celebration dating back to the slavery days, where slaves would paint their bodies ...

TRIBE Ignite DC 2010 Review

5 Minutes With Tanya Stephens


Wait a minute... you mean to tell me that Inner Circle, Bounty Killer, Mavado, Serani and my favourite female reggae artist, Tanya Stephens, are all sharing the same stage at the 5th Annual Reggae Festival in Greensboro, NC? Lucky me! I believe that I got the pick of the litter by having the opportunity to interview the ...

So the rain started to pour down like cats and dogs with thunder and lightening from the heavens and everyone was seeking shelter, including veteran Calypsonians Winston 'Shadow' Bailey and Leroy 'Black Stalin' Calliste. After seeing them crawl under the stage at 'The Masquerade' to avoid the rains, the TJJ blood started to boil in me and I ...
