I am currently transitioning from my job as a sports writer and producer covering the New England Patriots for The Boston Globe‘s Boston.com. I will soon take on the role of senior web producer for Fox 25 News in Boston (WFXT). I’m originally from San Francisco and a graduate of California State University, Chico. I’ve been writing for newspapers since 2003, covering sports in Massachusetts and California as well as municipalities like Oakland, Calif., and Nevada City, Calif. I’ve also penned an award-winning column for The Union’s sports section, touching on preps, pro and community sports. In my time at the Globe and Boston.com, I’ve helped cover the NBA Finals, two Stanley Cup Finals and a Super Bowl. I’ll call it a coincidence that Boston.com has taken two Top 10 APSE awards for its sports 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.
While my focus at Boston.com has often been Patriots related, I’ve also been known to cover other major sporting events, help out on high schools, and tweet about anything from the Celtics to the San Francisco Giants. You may even see my work as a freelancer.
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.
