I am a journalist, creative technologist, and entrepreneur.
When building out apps and interactive projects, I really enjoy using JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. To learn more about my design/tech skills (and the specific tools I use), look here.
Previously, I served on NPR’s National Arts Desk, helping to produce segments for news programs like Morning Edition, Weekend Edition and All Things Considered. At ABC News, I worked behind the camera, covering the 2012 presidential election and primary campaigns. My articles have appeared in several publications, including The Genteel, where I served as the magazine’s New York correspondent, covering fashion and art trends.

At the University of Toronto, I studied International Relations and earned my master’s at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Currently, I am enrolled at General Assembly‘s Software Engineering Immersive bootcamp.
I am also the co-founder of Tib Tib House of Tea, a healthy beverage company inspired by my grandmother and African heritage.
