Fellow photographers - can you chip in to help out? This young photographer was just diagnosed with ALS (ALS - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). I can't imagine what he's going through right now.
Please consider donating.

Introduction

Thanks for visiting my profile. I'm a specialist in traditional and digital media. I've worked as a news reporter, content/community manager, media consultant, I'm an award-winning video producer, and I've been vlogging since 2006. 

I'm the the co-founder of WebVideoChefs.com, a video production tutorial community, my blog is MyUrbanReport.com

I've been featured on NPRForbes.com, BlackEnterprise.com, and my work has appeared on national and local news outlets (more on that below).

I founded and provide media consulting and video production services through Visual Eye Media

I've worked with brands and organizations that include: AT&T, Visa, Holiday Inn Hotels, Coca-Cola, Hershey's, Chick-fil-A, Popeyes, Expedia.com, Kennesaw State University, the School of Audio Engineering, and Hillsborough Community College to mention a few. 

My content, commentaries, and reports have appeared on APTN (Associated Press Television News), CNN, ABC, Headline News, Fox News Channel, BET, Black Family Channel, HDNews, and across the Web. [Watch my newsreel]

I often speaks at conferences, workshops, and universities across the country about traditional and new media. I've taught video production/digital media at Kennesaw State University, Hillsborough Community College, the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in Tampa, FL, and I currently teach at the University of West GA.

In 2010, I received a Master of Arts from the University of South Florida.
