    Brown Davis Interiors


    “Comfort is the Greatest Luxury”


    Todd Davis and Rob Brown joined their shared passion for classic architecture, discerning environments, and extraordinary craftsmanship to create Brown Davis Interiors in 1994.  Brown Davis has designed two residences for the Clintons, President and Secretary of State, The British Embassy residence and an array of exceptional projects involving contemporary and historic renovation. Always seeking inspiration and growth in artistic styles and influences, Brown Davis is based at the iconic 1111 Lincoln Road complex on Miami Beach, Florida. The saturated hues, tropical landscape and design mecca of Miami have influenced a bold aesthetic that resists conformity. It is instead a uniquely American perspective, fusing the traditional roots of classicism, with an exuberant, modern, sensual vitality.


    Brown Davis practices couture interior design. Every choice is an intimate reflection of the client; creating distinctive and elegant spaces for lives well lived.


    Both partners have MBAs contributing to their refined project management, and fiscal responsibility. Coupled with design intelligence, Brown Davis has earned their most cherished honor: Trust.

    in Radio

    I have travelled the world providing much needed health care to underserved populations and realized that in the midst of all of the abundance in my own country people were struggling to be healthy. As a practicing dentist for over 25 years, I know how hard it is to navigate our very fragmented health system. My passion to help others transform their lives  inspired me to receive my health coaching certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  I am now approaching completion of certification from the Whole Health Institute.


    My inspiration is my God Sister Vernez Kitrell. She embraced a nurturing, restorative and supportive approach to her achieving wellness in her life. After being diagnosed with cancer, she struggled to find the holistic care that she desired .Sadly; she lost her battle with cancer and passed away. The most important lesson I learned from my journey with her is to have balance in my life, live to the fullest and strive to live as healthy as possible. My journey with her inspired me to make the healthy living experience fun and empowering.


     Seva Life was created to people embrace a healthier way of being without so many of the frustrations and expense often encountered. I have seen my dreams manifest themselves and owe it in part to embracing healthy living principles and striving to main balance and harmony mind body and spirit.

Under her leadership, EAG has greatly expanded its programs and services to include The Headshot Project (free, professional headshots for clients of EAG) and The Actors' Pantry, which provides groceries to EAG clients and their families.

    Tito Puente Jr. Musician/ Band Leader

    in Music

    The comparison is inevitable. How could it be otherwise? Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, and his music. Tito, Jr. is on a passionate mission. The younger Puente is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father. He refuses to let his father become a distant memory. “He was just too vibrant, too exciting. There was magic in the music my father made. It made people happy all over the world.” He has found captive audiences who echo his passion. Crowds lured to a venue by the father are returning to see the son -- and to once again participate in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage. Tito Puente, Jr. has become an audience favorite in casinos, performing arts centers, symphony halls and jazz festivals worldwide, performing more than 300 shows over the past 5 years. His 2004 album, “In My Father’s Shoes” featured the classic Puente titles and was spun into a BET Jazz television special of the same name. He was seen in a tribute to his father’s music on NBC’s two hour special--“The Apollo at 70: A Hot Night in Harlem.” He has also appeared on the ABC soap opera hit “One Life to Live” in performance with his big band. Symphony appearances include Dallas, San Antonio, Colorado, South Bend, and upcoming performances with the Palm Desert Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. Tito, Jr.’s new CD release, “Got Mambo?” is a mixture of the old and the new as he takes a musical departure into some powerful new music he can truly call his own. Guest artists Bobby Cruz and Hansel & Raul help make this a coming of age project for Puente, Jr. and the album is receiving heavy praise from Tropical and Latin Jazz critics alike.

    in Entertainment

    ?The Media.  Tonight we will have a very special guest, Mr. Allen Rosskopf, retired Journalism and English Professor.  We will be tackling the following:



    How the delivery of news has changed and the concept of what now passes as a news story, vs. what we have seen historically (print, TV and radio).
    What part has technology played in the changing landscape of the media?  Pros and Cons?
    Are we adversely affected as a society, by the manner in which information is currently being disseminated?
    What has happened to the Black Media (The Afro-American Newspaper, BET News, etc.)?  Why is it relevant/necessary to the Black community?


    Plan on an exciting dialogue and have your questions ready. No-Tea, Just talk.  We'll be waiting.
