Candice Vernon is an award-winning writer/director, real estate investor, philanthropist, and general superhero (but we won't tell anyone her secret identity). She's the founder of She Werks Consulting, a video content studio that helps small businesses tell their stories through the magic of film. Oh, and did we mention she's also a co-founder of Investwise Africa? So when she's not busy bossing people around on set, you can find Candice jet-setting around the world making smart investments and making even smarter jokes. Yep, she's got her fingers in all the pies.


Candice's directing career took off with her short film, MAKE AMERICA GREAT?, which was so good, it made The Hollywood Reporter do a double-take. And if that wasn't impressive enough, Stevie Wonder hand-picked her to direct THE DREAM STILL LIVES, a star-studded celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life that featured everyone from The Obama's to Paul McCartney.


Born in Jamaica and raised in the USA and Germany, Candice's unique outlook on life is what makes her stand out in a sea of creatives. She's passionate about storytelling and has a knack for comedy and documentary content that always hits the mark. She's even worked with big-name brands like NBA2K, Vaseline, Warner Media|HBO, and Spotify (no biggie). Most recently she’s at the helm of TWO TRIALS, a feature length documentary surrounding the social justice cases of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. And if all that isn't enough, she splits her time between Los Angeles and Accra, Ghana, where she's building The Candice Vernon Institute of Creative Arts & Technology - because apparently, she doesn't believe in free time.


That's right, folks - she's not just a clever creative, she's also making a difference in the world by providing opportunities for young people in Ghana to pursue their passions and reach their full potential. So, if you're lucky enough to cross paths with Candice, be prepared to be dazzled by her brilliance and inspired by her heart. And don't forget to bring your A-game (and maybe a few good jokes) - because with Candice around, there's never a dull moment.
