A Passion For Writing

I am a writer located in the greater Los Angeles area. I first discovered my passion for writing during my undergrad years. In 2016, I took my first journalism class and fell in love with the magic of telling the stories of real people. My experiences at being Black at a predominantly white institution gave me the drive to find underrepresented voices, including my own, and make them heard. 

Since then, I've written columns, editorials, news stories and features that look for something special. I find that the best pieces do not settle for text and quotes. Rather a story must pull a reader in, and put forward dynamic content that keeps them reading right until the very end. 

I also create graphic designs, social media campaigns and other content. Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to work remotely with Black Connect Inc. and its newly founded nonprofit sector. It is the only national, chapter-based nonprofit organization dedicated to closing the racial wealth gap. I produce blogs, graphics, social media campaigns, press releases and newsletters. I have experience with SEO and web design for other publications and creating infographics and other forms of visual content.  

I like to work for companies with missions that I believe in. I look forward to discussing a potential partnership with you.
