I’m a Broadcast & Digital Journalist/Presenter and Creator/Producer. I create smart, high-quality, Music, Arts & Culture content for news organizations, media companies, lifestyle brands and other institutions. I conceive, research and develop stories, coordinate shoots, conduct on-camera interviews, direct camera operators in the field, manage budgets, and ensure project voice and vision.
My 13-year media career is preceded by an extensive urban arts background (as an artist and administrator); my independent work is informed by this aesthetic, and tends to be eclectic, socially conscious, and globally minded. My current endeavor, The #DOWNNOW Project, has been awarded by National Geographic, Chicago DCASE, and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ). I’ve also been recognized as an Emerging Producer by the World Congress of Science & Factual Producers (WCSFP).
My freelance work has often been more mainstream, pop-culture oriented and usually airs or posts thru my affiliates before it appears here (this site serves to archive and present the range of my work at my own pace). See the Reelwork page and the Materials sidebar for work samples and resume (scroll down on mobile devices). Principals representing serious business opportunities are invited to contact me here.
My diverse, but relevant professional experience also includes voiceover/narration, script and copy writing, brand and cause ambassadorship, live event hosting and moderating, logo design and branding, music production, and soundtrack curation.
