I am a communications strategist, independent radio producer, and videographer based in Harlem, NY. I learned about the potential of storytelling as an advocate and community organizer working with refugees and asylum seekers first in my home state of North Carolina, then Zimbabwe, the U.K., New Jersey, and California. In 2001, I received the Reebok Human Rights Award. Since then, I have created digital campaigns with nonprofit and philanthropic organizations and witnessed the impact that individual stories have on shifting larger narratives about immigrant and refugee rights. As a result, I produced a podcast series, Indefensible, in collaboration with people facing deportation. I also produced the Houses on the Moon Podcast and The Opportunity Agenda’s Shifting the Narrative podcast. My audio stories have aired on NPR News, 99% Invisible, BBC World Service, and Georgia Public Broadcasting among others. I am a proud member of the Association of Independents in Radio and the Public Radio Exchange. You can reach me via email here.
