I am a freelance journalist that produces and writes for various outlets on issues of race, class, politics, policy and popular culture. I am currently an Emerging Voices Fellow at the public policy think tank Demos, where I also write for their PolicyShop blog. Before that I was a fellow at the New America Foundation and worked as a producer for Moyers & Company, a weekly newsmagazine on PBS. When I’m not tracking down sources or pitching ideas, I try to expand my brain power as a Ph.D student in American Studies at Rutgers University, where I am working on a dissertation about the representation of the black middle class on network television in the “Post-Cosby” era. Check out my work as a writer, producer and academic. I also occasionally post some amateur photography here.
