Interviewing Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard at NBA 2K19’s Preview Event

I received my Bachelor of Science in Communication from Tennessee State University in 2014. During my matriculation, I served as sports editor of The Meter, Tennessee State University’s award-winning student newspaper.

More recently, I earned my Master of Science in Media and Communication from Middle Tennessee State University.

During the summer of 2018, I interned with the Knoxville News Sentinel, through the Sports Journalism Institute. I’ve also completed internships with The Tennessean, The Tennessee Tribune and Pride Publishing Group. In addition to The Curtis Critique, I’ve also contributed to Bleacher Report, FanSided.com and Home Page Media. To learn more about my experience, please visit my internship page.

Throughout the year, I also work as a utility with ESPN for the production of college football, basketball and baseball games.
