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 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.
