You know the kid that always got in trouble for talking too much, or always asking a lot of questions? Yea, that was me.
I grew up in Decatur, Georgia and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Claflin University, the first Historically Black College in South Carolina where I served as the SGA President.
My first reporting job was at WLTX in Columbia, South Carolina. At WLTX I won an Edward R. Murrow Award for my reporting on concussions in middle and high schools.
In 2015 I started working with First Coast News in Jacksonville, Florida. There I covered the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump, the church shooting in Charleston, the Pulse Nightclub mass shooting and Hurricane Matthew.
In 2016 I won an Emmy for my reporting on coaching salaries and education.
Following Jacksonville, I was a reporter at KSHB in Kansas City, Missouri. While enjoying some great BBQ, I covered politics in Kansas and Missouri. I served as lead reporter during the Gov. Eric Greitens sex scandal and resignation. I also covered historic flood and multiple tornados.
Mentoring is important to me. Since 2011 I have been a “big” with Big Brothers Big Sisters in multiple states.
I’m proud of my Atlanta roots and sports teams, my personal passion is covering politics. I’m a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the National Association of Black Journalists.
