I flourish through signs

I am Alexis Larinda Carney (Lexie). I am a 27 year old Hard of Hearing singer, marketer, and writer (creative producer). The first person in my family to graduate college, I put together a team to promote sustainable art. 

Deaf Child's mission: make music, bring people together, support communities. Deaf Child is my DBA. The name comes from my complete Deaf Gain in my left ear (partial Deafness in right) since birth. I don't understand speech very well.

I earned my Bachelor of Science from Loyola University New Orleans in Music Industry Studies plus Business Administration. I study how people find, interpret, then act on different forms of communication (semiotics). Music and sign language are my preferred communication methods. I currently wear hearing aids.

It takes a village! Shah produces electronic music, plus ran Seriously Sik sound rentals before the pandemic. Cristina is not only a sales consultant, but also a Deaf mother of five. She is an advocate for Deaf Culture and ASL access.

Deaf Child's work would not be possible without love from friends and family.

Shout out to Very Sherrie, Tori, Katalina, Lyndz, Daira.
