PROJECTS

Sista Brunch is an interview-style podcast about Black women+ who work and thrive in one of the world’s most competitive industries: Hollywood. Hosted by NAACP-nominated TV director Anya Adams and Fanshen Cox, co-author of the Inclusion Rider made famous by Frances McDormand, Sista Brunch amplifies the overlooked contributions of women who work on projects that impact how we see the world — and each other. I developed the editorial direction and production flow of this podcast. I currently oversee show production and collaborate on promotion strategies.

Change Makers is a limited edition digital and broadcast series that explores what happens when people in business decide to change the lives of others. I developed the show concept, sourced and interviewed each guest, and edited each audio piece. The show launched on Marketplace.com and broadcast nationally in January 2020. Listen to Fanshen Cox, Arlan Hamilton, Aimée Felone, Bertha Jimenez and Kelly Peeler discuss what inspired them to create real social change through their business.


The Media Disruptors (Public Radio International) launched in March 2017. This series was created as the #metoo movement and the Women’s March rose to prominence, and at a time when women of color were asking how inclusive these movements were. I developed this project especially for PRI, identified and booked each guest, conducted each interview, and wrote each piece. Listen to BAFTA award-winning director Amma Asante, Hollywood trailblazer Joanelle Romero, sociologist Nancy Wang Yuen, April Reign, the creator of the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite and others talk about how they have changed established narratives on race and gender.


Make Me Smart: I developed the editorial tone of “Make Me Smart,” the top-rated Amazon Alexa skill from Marketplace.
