Marlene Daley's vision for a highly produced online publication that features the best of Caribbean culture, has taken shape in the form of KOTCH, a sizzling, stylish new magazine that is published quarterly. "From my short foray in corporate Jamaica, to owning my own antique store, to working as a realtor, I couldn't foresee this. I had no idea that my life would have taken this direction. I often feel that there is an unseen hand that guides us to our highest calling, and if we are so attuned we will be led to our purpose," Marlene stated. Daley is publisher of KOTCH, which debuted in January with an issue that featured Jamaican pilot Barrington Irving, whose name is now etched in the halls of fame for being the youngest and first Black man to navigate the earth solo.
