Based in St. Louis, I work as a journalist, consultant and content strategist and trainer. (See specialities below).

Most recently, I was a regional editor for Patch.com in the metro St. Louis area--leading a team of 13 journalists and supervising 12 community news and information websites.

I joined Patch.com after more than four years on the Radio-Television faculty at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Before that I was on the journalism faculty at Florida A&M University.

I have been working in journalism since 1991, when I was hired as the first news director at Great Belize Television.

"News 5" was the first independent television newscast to air in Belize. I took a two-year detour into public relations before heading for graduate school the mid-1990's.

My first job after grad school was as a newscast producer at WFMJ-TV, the NBC affiliate in Youngstown, Ohio. From there I went to WTAE-TV(ABC) in Pittsburgh, also as a newscast producer. I switched gears to special projects producing in Cleveland at WOIO-TV (CBS) and later WDIV-TV (NBC) in Detroit.

I am an active member of the Society of Professional Journalists, serving as national membership committee chair. I also am a long-time member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
