Content Strategist, Copy Editor, Copywriter, Editor, Ghostwriter, Graphic Designer, Photographer, Writer

I wear a lot of hats as a designer, writer, and web producer. Its my goal to be creative, inspiring, and always strive for excellence no matter how big or small the project.

I have been culture surfing around Atlanta for over ten years. I am an award-winning digital manager and film critic for Creative Loafing newspapers, and have written for Huffington Post, Essence online, Ebony online, and Living Intown (Atlanta) magazine to name a few. Creativity is my passion and I love the challenge of tackling new projects. I've worked on a few stage productions including: lead writer for the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial gala (lead writer); Joseph Lowery’s 90th birthday celebration (writer), and provided promotional photography and promotion designs for "In The Midnight Hour: The Music of Wilson Pickett.” When I'm not designing or writing something, you can usually find me in the yard, cooking, or volunteering for local causes.
