Producers are rarely seen. We live in control rooms, remote trucks and writers rooms.  It’s behind the camera where I decide what goes into a show, how much time we should spend on a topic and what video should play.  My producing career began at local TV stations in San Diego, CA (KNSD-TV), Baltimore, MD (WJZ-TV) and Philadelphia, PA (WPVI-TV). I joined ESPN in 2015 where I launched SC6 with Michael Smith and Jemele Hill. In June 2018, I began my latest project with Rydholm Projects where I’m the Senior Producer on High Noon on ESPN. I lead a team of producers in creating a show that’s fun, interesting, informative and surprising.

When I’m not watching or making TV,  I’m an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists. I was voted Vice President of Broadcast for the Sports Task Force, NABJ’s subgroup representing hundreds of sports journalists around the world.

I’m a proud graduate of the University of Southern California where I studied Broadcast Journalism and International Relations.

Most importantly, I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA.  I am a huge Sixers & Eagles fan. Go Birds!
