Culture Forward is how I approach journalism. I like have discussions that are relevant to the black community, and where we fit within the wider society. Sometimes I look at culture as something that is all-inclusive, but there are things I grew up with, like music, film and art, that I hold sacred. They were passed down to me through tradition, or through movements that were political, like hip-hop. So, these elements stay with me when I tackle subjects and topics.
I'm unapologetically black; it's the way that I live, and how I think. Throughout my career, I've covered music of all genres, and topics from a broad range of industries, but I've found my voice within the space that defines me.
