After graduating with her B.A. in Television and Film production, from Iona College, Evita Robinson (Evie) hit the world running, or creating, rather. Within weeks of graduation, in 2006, she attended the New York Film Academy, studying Digital Filmmaking in Paris, France at La Femis film school. There, the seed for Nomadness LLC was planted after receiving acclaim for the films created through the duration of her program.
Since her first taste of Europe, at age twenty-one, Evita has traveled to twelve countries, on three different continents. She has since lived in New York, Paris, Japan, and Thailand.
After concluding a year and a half of traveling around the world, while videotaping her life on the NomadnessTV web series, Evie came back to New York on a mission to bridge her love of production and new found need for travel. In September 2011 she created the Nomadness Travel Tribe, an online social community for travelers all around the world, who have the similarity of an urban background or stylistic when traveling. For Evie, it's about being the representation for the under represented. Within a year, the Tribe has augmented to a world wide movement. Now approaching 10,000 members, boasting over 15,000 passport stamps, from nearly three dozen countries. She was named one of Clutch Magazine's "11 Black Women Inspiring Us To Travel", and the Tribe's first ever NomadnessX group trip to Panama was featured in the July 2012 issue of Ebony Magazine. From the success of the online group, Evie thrust herself into the world of entrepreneurship, and in April 2012, launched the business home for all things Nomadness and travel oriented, Nomadness LLC. The business end of Nomadness includes the online community, merchandise line, travel series, group trips, and much more to come in the future.
Previously, while in New York City she worked in televsion and film production. Her resume included production work with names such as A&E, HBO, MTV, BET, BBC, TURNER, the reality travel series JET SET ZERO, and Spike Lee’s 40 ACRES AND A MULE FILMWORKS.
