Welcome to my site!
An editor, journalist, and seasoned marketing professional, I bring over 5+ years of expertise in publishing and digital media to the table.
During my undergraduate years at Georgia State University, I initiated Quaint Revolt Media—an innovative lifestyle publishing brand that thrived from 2017 to 2020. Serving as its founder and editor-in-chief, I cultivated this multimedia platform to elevate emerging creative voices across art, design, and cultural production. Managing a team of 10 employees, I oversaw multifaceted operations, including business development, non-dilutive fundraising, editorial and creative direction (both digital and print), and more.
Transitioning to freelance writing and editing, I collaborated with notable brands like ArtsATL, HBCU academic journals, and various small businesses. Additionally, I enriched my portfolio by editing a spectrum of non-fiction books for Ulysses Press and independent authors.
In 2023, I achieved a master's in publishing from New York University, earning esteemed accolades such as the Hearst Endowment for Magazine Media Scholarship and the Award for Excellence in Digital and Magazine Media during my studies.
Presently, I contribute as a podcast marketer at iHeartMedia while actively pursuing a full-time editor role. I'm poised to channel my skill set into a company where my expertise can truly shine.
The Devotional for Black Women - Ulysses Press (January 2024)
Role: Developmental Editor
I worked alongside the associate editor and author to improve the manuscript's content and structure. My primary goals included: refining the tone of the book, identifying holes in the text, ensuring writing consistency, and suggesting and making copy edits.
The Autism Workbook for Parents – Ulysses Press (March 2024)
Role: Copy Editor
Originally published in the early 2000s, The Autism Workbook
is now slated for a 2024 re-issue. Along with redesigning the cover,
the publisher wanted to update the book's language to match currently
acceptable terminologies and descriptions. I took charge of copy editing the existing manuscript to prepare the book for publishing.
Demystifying Promotion & Tenure: A Resource For Black Women – PLR Consulting Services (December 4, 2021)
After the success of her newsletter guiding women on the tenure track, Dr. Pamela Leggett-Robinson of PLR Consulting decided to compile her expertise into a book that could reach a wider audience of women in academia. Through a recommendation from my former employee, I was selected as the book's editor. I worked with the author from the early stages to publication - which included rigorous stages of developmental and copy editing.

Pressures of motherhood: Women can have fulfillment without children
When I went home to Jamaica, the personal inquiry was constantly bestowed upon me. “You don’t have any kids yet?,” a family friend asked. “When are you going to have a little one?,” my younger cousin pressed. I was only 23, and found the prying utterly offensive, both to my w

-Main character….eh. It was fine. But very presentational. “Showed” us a lot how he felt rather than feeling it and acting it out. Has a great vocal quality, but needs a few meisner classes.
-Story was predictable and poorly executed. Figured out ending midway through e02, 100% certain in e03 or 04. -Lost a lot of dynamic story telling by using exposition (a LOT of exposition) instead of letting action happen
My focus revolves around merging impactful design with compelling storytelling to drive tangible results. Through a fusion of my editorial prowess and marketing acumen, I craft polished copy that resonates with its intended audience. Over time, I've honed my skills in adhering to both the AP and Chicago style guides, ensuring the highest caliber of writing.
Be it an article, essay, or book, my editing approach emphasizes maintaining the author's voice while upholding rigorous editorial standards. I firmly believe that content should be accessible to all while maintaining precision.
