I am an award winning digital storyteller, multimedia producer, filmmaker and Associate Professor of Digital Storytelling in the School of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

My areas of expertise are the intersection of women/girls, technology and health/conflict/agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa and diversity in Hollywood, specifically the representation of Black women in television. I am a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, DAWN (Diaspora African Women's Network) and a 2013 New Media Fellow with the International Reporting Project.

I am also a regular contributor for media outlets including CGTN America and CTN Canada as a media expert on a variety of issues, specifically, pop culture, politics, US race relations and representations of minorities in the media.

I am an avid traveler and spends my time collecting passport stamps with my 6 year old son, Isaiah.
