Thanks for stopping by. Here's my story.

I began writing for the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Kaleidoscope Newspaper and the Birmingham Times, contributing stories. I was also published in The Birmingham News and blogged for Urbanham.com. Serving as a community activist, I moderated events for the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, organized community empowerment workshops, voter registration campaigns and co-founded an annual concert to benefit local NAACP college chapters. I had the opportunity to host youth events for the SCLC as well.

Just to name a few accolades that made me happy, I was named a Who's Who in Birmingham honoree in 2005, then listed again in 2008 and 2009, being noted for my activism in the city. I am also a Who's Who in Alabama honoree. In 2006, I was named a postgraduate honoree of Who's Who in American Colleges & Universities.

In the landscape of entertainment--I have interviewed music legend Kirk Franklin, worked with MusicWorld Records CEO Mathew Knowles to feature artists as Le'Andria Johnson and also featured music legend Yolanda Adams, to name a few. During graduate school, I was a part of hip-hop television show productions while developing a Comcast TV pilot for "The Movement" radio show. I also had the opportunity to host and produce for the Rejoice! Television Network. I've been a voting member of the GRAMMY Recording Academy and worked on the production team of America's Got Talent, including commercial work.

I later managed social media for the National Office of the NAACP's 13 platforms, including the Image Awards.

I currently reside in Washington D.C., where I serve as Digital Editor of MyHoustonGOSPEL.com, MyBirminghamGOSPEL.com and work for an agency managing digital strategy for two major U.S. airports.
