I am a New York City native who found a familiar solace in the fashion and culture explosion Dallas experienced in the early 2000s. Honestly, I couldn’t have been here at a better time. Back in 2002, I discovered that I could shop, eat, travel and go to events and people would actually pay for the same kind observations that I’d post on my blog anyway. Since then I’ve been a contributing writer for a number of publications including the Huffington Post, Forbes Travel Guide, Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, Trip.com, BlackAmericaWeb.com, Allhiphop.com and BET.com. For seven years I gave visitors the inside scoop on Dallas shopping via Where Magazine and I served as the managing editor of SoulTrain.com since its launch in 2009 until 2011. During the day I am an accomplished marketer who has worked for global corporations including McAfee, Bombardier, and Expedia, Inc. I have experience in affiliate marketing, content management, social media marketing, web copywriting, CMS installation and development, and some creative direction sprinkled in for good measure. I've had the privilege to do what I love since the day I graduated college.
