There are three reasons in particular why I have a strong love and passion for social media: it cannot be controlled, it gives a voice to the voiceless, and it has the ability to create transformative experiences for all those involved. In recent years, social media has not only changed how we consume and dissect information, it has also raised the awareness of every industry and i's consumers. It has also put the power in our hands to express ourselves in ways that are true to who we really are as brands, as businesses, and most importantly, as people. 

One of my favorite quotes is my journalist Rick Bragg, "To get someone to tell you the truth, get them to tell you a story."

My job is to teach mission driven Creatives and brands how to leverage their stories online for offline success. I will help you discover your perspectives to build partnerships, connections, and an online community that will expand on your mission. 

I have worked with small businesses, major brands, mission driven startups, entrepreneurs, and Creatives to share their brands through social media campaigns and consultations, handling social media for live events, brand ambassador and influencer programs and more. I enjoy finding opportunities for brands within the digital and social space. I enjoy creating workshops for teens to help understand how to use their social media powers for good.

My ultimate objective is to use social media as a tool to bring service to the forefront of our brands and businesses through education and empowerment.

I look forward to creating tools, experiences, and opportunities to teach social media through the lens of storytelling and service.

I am also the leader of #blkcreatives, a lifestyle brand for the young, professional and Black creative with a mission to shift the culture from the inside out.
