I am a freelance broadcast and print 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.
I just finished up a stint on a film about the black middle class that will air on PBS’ POV program. Before that I was a fellow at the New America Foundation and worked as a producer for Moyers & Company, a weekly newsmagazine on PBS. I got my start working for Congressional Quarterly in Washington, DC and have worked for a range of outlets as a staffer and on a freelance basis including: MSNBC, Fox News, PBS, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Quartz, The San Francisco Chronicle, US News and World Report, Transition, CosmoGirl!, Teen Vogue, Colorlines, Black Enterprise, Uptown, Politic365 and The NJ Bergen Record. 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 film and television. Check out my work as a writer, producer and academic. I also occasionally post some amateur photography here.
