Professional/Personal Overview
  Im an associate and web editor for The Louisiana Weekly newspaper in New Orleans - the oldest African-American newspaper in the Southeast Louisiana region - where I have been employed since 2004. I earned a BA in English from Dillard University in 2004.

Issues of economic development have been my passion and gave birth to my goal of reestablishing New Orleans as an international city; as such, I work on campaigns to help rebrand the region and promote and preserve its diversity of culture, its vibrant economy and natural resources and environment.

I have worked to coordinate economic development efforts, advocacy and education within the Greater New Orleans region. Projects and organizations that he has worked with include The Louisiana Weekly, MarketUmbrella, TED, and TEDxNOLA, and is working to build a business association in Gentilly to help support the area's economic opportunities.
