Hi! I'm Sheryl Carbonell

I am human. A woman. A black woman. Beyond that, one cannot draw assumptions about my speech, my music tastes, my socio-economic status, what my singing voice is like, etc. etc.

Conscious and Unconscious BIAS. YUCK! Let's raise our consciousness and stamp it out. Creatively, intentionally, with hearts and minds wide open. 

To combat it,
join me in my mission and let's

CREATE+CONNECT+COLLABORATE
with like-minded individuals
creating

relationship-rich content
without bias.
People are people. It's simple!

Professional work-related inquiries only.

THANK YOU

A little more

Where was I born?

Windsor Ontario, Canada.

 

People say I'm Jamaican

Yep! My parents are Jamaican and raised me with their culture, music, and patois. They met and married in London England. They are the 'Windrush Generation'- immigrants from Jamaica that helped rebuild England's post WWII infrastructure in exchange for jobs and  education. This created an interesting cultural blend to our family. By the time I came into existence, they'd moved to Canada where I was born. I remember eating lots of Jamaican foods dancing to reggae, calypso and soca but also calling cookies 'biscuits', British baked beans for breakfast and drinking English tea with milk and sugar. 

 

I sing and am musical...

YEP! started piano lessons- age 7, singing solos - age 8. I have a Masters Degree in Music Education and Performance with over 20 years music teaching experience in public and private schools. Currently, I teach voice and piano lessons.

Link up here for more of that: 

 

When was my first acting gig?

Age 12! I auditioned for ANNIE. The director and judging panel wanted to cast me as Annie, BUT... at that time, little black girls couldn't be Annie, so I was orphan July instead. I had fun but it stuck with me. Hence my current mission, let's eliminate bias. There's no need for it!

Did I do theatre at school?

Nope! My parents moved me from Windsor to Florida, and I went through massive culture shock. Didn't fit in anywhere... I stopped singing, playing piano. I regret not doing theatre. Hopefully I've caught up on what I missed. 

So how did I end up acting?

I sang professionally with the Orlando Opera Co. by night. By day I taught chorus post college graduation.

 

I left teaching to raise my first son, and a few years later, my opera company closed.

 

Before it closed, I booked my first principal role as Third Spirit in THE MAGIC FLUTE and loved it so much! I wanted to know how to make my scene work feel 'real' all of the time. Without an artistic outlet, I decided it was time to study acting and the rest of this tale is unfolding as we speak!!!
