View my Resume

I’m an accomplished writer and editor with more than 12 years experience across the print and online spectrum.

COPYWRITING. I have written copy and created concepts for interactive websites, digital display ads, banners and more for Macys.com. Plus, I've written many men’s and kids' product descriptions and copy for larger marketing campaigns, as well as copy for SEO initiatives to help the e-retailer's search ranking. I’ve also collaborated with art directors to create conceptual promotional projects for MTV’s Creative Services department.

I’m also skilled at managing client relationships, assessing needs, and translating objectives into powerful communications vehicles, as demonstrated by my work at American Express Custom Solutions.

JOURNALISM. I’ve contributed hundreds of articles to more than 30 premier media outlets such as the TheRoot.com, BlackEnterprise.com, NewsOne.com, AOL BlackVoices/TheBVX (now Huffington Post’s Black Voices), Los Angeles Times, MTV, Essence, Time Out New York, Associated Press, Newsday, Hartford Courant, Newark Star-Ledger, Complex, Uptown, Miami New Times, Vibe, VH1.com, GIANT, among many others.
