I am a Senior National Correspondent with MTV News.

Most recently, I was a Senior Editor at New Republic, where I wrote and edited columns and features for both print and digital. There, I also hosted the podcast INTERSECTION, which dealt with identity politics.

Prior to that, I served as a segment for two MSNBC programs, "The Rachel Maddow Show" and "Melissa Harris-Perry."

Bylines have also appeared in the Washington Post, Ebony.com, and theGrio. Previous stops include NFL Films, HBO Sports, CNN and the William Morris Agency. I have three Sports Emmys on the shelf. Cleveland will always be home.
