GOOD VIBES TO GO
Radio DJ, host, director, writer, and producer Jazmin Reyes finds meaning in good storytelling.
multi-hyphenate Jazmin Reyes on purpose and true happiness.
At any given moment, you can find Jazmin Reyes knee-deep in story development, whether it’s for the morning radio show that she hosts on Play FM, Chef Claude Tayag’s TV show Chasing Flavors (for which she is co- director), or her next short film (a recent collab titled Pagnanakaw won second place at an international competition). “I get story ideas from people, places, and experiences. Some I write down with the idea of turning them into short films or TV shows, others just into silly videos. I started with theater, and the rigorous practice of developing characters to make a scene more effective is always a wonderful exercise.” She says, “I think when you find your purpose in the world, you can attain a sense of happiness that isn’t materialistic or romantic—a self-actualization that allows you to move meaningfully in life. I’m still finding that purpose for myself, but I’m moving towards it, slowly but surely.”
“The smell of coffee in the morning, the pitter-patter of your dog’s paws, the ocean breeze... Celebrating these often neglected simple joys paves the way for true enlightenment.”
