Harlem at heart.
I am known for my writing, my Harlem salons and my idea hacks. In fact, my weekly essays to friends, my belle-lettres, landed me my first television writing job!
My original goal for living in New York was to become a magazine editor-publisher, like Clay Felker, but instead I cut my professional teeth as an aide to former president Bill Clinton. I managed his disaster relief efforts, engagement with Harlem, and his speeches and correspondence. The latter responsibility proved to be my favorite. I wrote a weekly essay for ten years about chasing guys, lines at clubs and the socialite struggle life. It's now written monthly. I love being featured on a provocative panel, and have spoken at Austin Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Nantucket Film Festival, and Urbanworld in my previous role as the face of the WGA East for indie film and emerging television writer engagement. Because of that, I ran the Made in NY Writers Room and created the NY Screenwriter Workshop with FilmNation.
The most satisfying description I have heard of myself is that I am the perfect mix of irreverence, debauchery and sarcasm.
