I am a freelance writer and journalist in Denver, Colorado. I write news and features about music, entertainment and popular culture, particularly in relation to African Americans and Africa, as well as emerging trends relating to spirituality, technology, psychology and social change. I also do copywriting for advertising, web design and content development for web sites. I write my An Eye on Africa series for readers in the United States and throughout the world who are interested in fresh ideas and insights on the African Motherland outside of the mainstream media focus on crisis, war, poverty and conflict. I’ve traveled extensively in South Africa, Indonesia and Southeast Asia, and I lived in Johannesburg, South Africa for 8 years, from the historic April, 1994 national elections until March, 2002.
