What I Do

In addition to writing scripted content for my own podcasts and video segments. I also have bylines at Rotten Tomatoes, The Wrap and SYFY WIRE. Plus my debut novel "Protectors of Wakanda" is dropping soon from Marvel!

Speaker

I regularly speak at colleges and conventions about everything from Diversity in Pop Culture, to Marginalized Voices in Comics Geek Journalism. If your university, trade show or program is looking for pop-culture programming, let's talk!
