I’m a writer in the Greater Boston area, with focuses in journalism, fiction, and publishing.
Types of Writing
Delighted to announced that “Boston’s Banner Years: 1965-2015, A Saga of Black Success” has been published. Edited by The Bay State Banner’s publisher and founder, it dives into local history and charts major achievements and events in Boston’s black community since the newspaper’s founding.
I contributed a chapter, “The Power of Banks,” on some of the forces that made financial self-determination a pressing need in the community, and the initiatives and institutions risen up to answer that need. Among the stories is that of founding, early struggles and development of what would become OneUnited Bank, the largest black-owned bank in the U.S.
The book is now available on Amazon .

From 2015 to fall 2017 I was a staff reporter for The Bay State Banner. I currently write for PYMNTS.
I have a B.A. in creative writing from Carnegie Mellon (2013) and currently am the lead writer for the board game startup Eye4Games and a content writer. My freelance writing includes board game rulebooks and research-intensive narrative non-fiction.
