I am an experienced digital editor and writer, most recently serving as the manager of web content at WFXT FOX25 News. Prior to that, I was a sports writer and producer covering the New England Patriots for The Boston Globe’s Boston.com.
I’m originally from San Francisco and a graduate of California State University, Chico. I wrote for newspapers from 2003 to 2010, covering sports in Massachusetts and California as well as municipalities like Oakland, Calif., and Nevada City, Calif., before transitioning to a fully digital role. I’ve also penned an award-winning column for The Union’s sports section, touching on preps, pro and community sports. While at the Globe and Boston.com, I was fortunate enough to help cover an NBA Finals, two Stanley Cup Finals and a Super Bowl. The Boston.com sports staff took two Top 10 APSE awards for its section during my tenure and one honorable mention.
I am also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and I serve as the vice president of the Boston chapter. (Interested? Check out our chapter.)
If you’re wondering, my name is Swahili. It means “beautiful” or “handsome.” And if you believe everything you read, it also means I’m a girl.
Here, you’ll find my thoughts on journalism, writing, culture, technology, sports and more. This is my playground. Enjoy it with me.
