Saiydah is the office maven at Creative Juice. She earned her Bachelors in Digital Filmmaking at the Art Institute of Atlanta where she found that her favorite part was pre-production; making sure everything is in place to start shooting, down to the very last detail. Early in life, it was realized that Saiydah had a knack for precision. It was seen in her excellence in school and in her free time where she’d do arts and crafts, and create innovative games. She would spend more time building houses, roads, cars and making clothes for her toys than she actually did playing with them. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y of Bajan parents, and raised in South Carolina, Sai also developed a love for traveling, and a passion for understanding different languages and cultures. When she's not keeping the office organized you can find her in a dance class, doing acro yoga, crafting, studying a new language or using her passport.
