Monique's bio

Hi, I'm Monique Solomon, the marketing manager at the famed Usain Bolt's Tracks and Records. It's a Jamaican-themed casual dining restaurant in Kingston, Jamaica. I'm also a digital marketer, helping clients to get traction online through advertising on Facebook, Instagram, Google Adworks, Twitter and YouTube.

Not too long ago and still every now and then, I freelance as a writer for news, travel, entertainment and lifestyle outlets both physical and online. I write lifestyle columns, press releases, event and product reviews, various articles commissioned for newspaper supplements and advertorials as requested by a handful of marketing and public relations firms.

On my blog IrieDiva.com, I cover fashion and lifestyle products, places and events with an aim of showcasing the best of Jamaica. Through the blog, I was appointed the local media manager for Randy Fenoli of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress who traveled to Jamaica for Kingston Bridal Week. I also work with the the Jamaica Tourist Board often to publicize Jamaican attractions and events.

Past and present writing clients/projects include Kingston Bridal Week, Wedding Spectacular, Randy Fenoli, Cricketer Chris Gayle, The Jamaica Tourist Board, DRT Communications, Breakthrough Communications, Benchmark Marketing, Intuit Concepts, Triple Century Sports Bar, Usain Bolt's Tracks and Records, Sangster's Rum Cream, Loop Jamaica and Jamaica Experiences.

Social media clients past and present include The Guardsman Group, Yow My Girl Swimwear,Red Bull Jamaica, Virgin Atlantic, Copperwood Pork, Caribbean Passion, Ammars Jamaica, The #NextGENDERation Project, Next Comes Love dating website, RoamingDonkey.com and JIIC.

Currently I am available for digital marketing clients and writing projects. Please contact me if you need any of the services you see listed here or if you think I may be a good fit for something else you have in mind.

Walk good! ~Irie
