La’Quwan Brandon, poet and aspiring author from East Orange, New Jersey. In the beginning, gig work was just a way for me to make a little extra cash on the side, whenever I had downtime. After I was let go from my job during the summer of 2019, I started doing it on a full-time basis and haven’t looked back since. So far I’ve done work for Lyft, Postmates, Jyve and Instacart. Writing for Tipped gives me an opportunity to take a journalistic approach towards providing helpful tips, suggestions, feedback and solutions to other gig workers. When I’m not working, I’m usually somewhere quiet, putting the final touches on my first novel “Mismatched”, an interracial love story with a twist. I anticipate its release sometime during the Spring of 2022. Be on the lookout.
