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'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.
