I have worked with the social media teams at Fast Company and The Daily Beast, which included tracking news stories and posting articles. I was also a contributor to the Fort Greene section of the New York Times’ Local blog. My writing has appeared in Vulture, Okayplayer’s jazz section (The Revivalist), Interactive One’s entertainment section (The Urban Daily), WatchLOUD, AllDigitrocracy, Brooklyn Based, and the New York Press Club’s website. I even blog on my own website, which you are probably reading right now.
My reporting has been published in the Wall Street Journal and Wax Poetics. In college I was a writer for The Excelsior, one of the student newspapers at Brooklyn College. I received my start as a New York Times intern in high school.
While studying broadcast journalism at Brooklyn College, I served as the head engineer for the campus radio station and was the engineer for a weekly radio show. On the video side, I was with the Brooklyn Cable News team during the summer of 2010, serving as a camera operator and VTR operator. A story I had worked on won the Mark of Excellence award from the Society of Professional Journalists’ Region 1 Chapter, and the team went on to win an award from the national organization.
In college I was enrolled in a mentoring program at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, paired with a mentor along with receiving guidance from the staff. I traveled to Ghana one summer with a study abroad group from my college, blogging about my time spent there on this site. I have been a member of the National Association of Black Journalists in the past, and have previously spoken on panels about diversity and race in the media with professionals from NY1 and CNN.
