ABOUT ME

Purpose.

Create.

I write and create content concepts to share real and authentic stories. The beauty of expression intrigues me. Art, intellect and creative minds energize me and enables me to learn share and further analyze the social and psychological world that surrounds us all. These entities fuse my creativity as a thinker, visionary and writer.

I am the social media manager for the JETmag.com platform, as well as a writer and editor across Johnson Publishing Company’s digital editorial platforms,including EBONY.com.

My coverage specialties include: Art, poetry, philanthropy, celebrities and music.

Prior to working with JET, my talents as a media consultant and journalist led to working with High Style Marketing & PR and Carte Blanche LTD., on projects ranging from grassroots organizations and community events to high-profiled celebrity red carpets and music festivals, managing media, overseeing the interview process – at times conducting on–the-spot interviews; managing social media accounts, research, brand messaging and strategy, writing and production set-up.

I have been published in N’DIGO Magapaper, ndigo.com, “The Barbershop Show” on Vocalo – sister radio station to WBEZ, Heed Magazine, AndWePresent.com, JET Magazine, JETMag.com and EBONY.com.

In addition to working in media, my passions expand to acting, spoken word poetry and working with youth. A graduate of Specs Howard School of Broadcast & Media Arts in Southfield, MI, I studied Television and Radio with a concentration in TV production and earned my bachelor’s in Magazine Journalism from Columbia College Chicago.
