My work is regularly featured on American, Canadian, and European radio networks. From the halls of Capitol Hill to the ancient streets of Cairo, I've covered politics, culture, and business for radio, television, and the web at the local, national and international level.
Before shifting to freelancing, I was a producer at NPR headquarters in Washington, D.C., beginning as assistant to Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr, and working with him until he passed away. At NPR, I also produced for Weekend Edition and the Washington Political Unit. In 2011, I was competitively selected for NPR's reporter training program, during which I reported for WBUR in Boston.
I also freelanced in Cairo from 2005-2007 while working on my graduate diploma in Political Science from the American University in Cairo. I hold degrees in Journalism and Political Science from the University of Missouri- Columbia. My journalism career began at 16 with an internship at my local TV station.
I still believe in the profession of journalism.
I'm a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, the Association of Independents in Radio, and the Overseas Press Club of America. In my free time, you can find me weaving through deadlocked Cairo traffic on my scooter or continuing the never-ending hunt for Carmen Sandiego.
