Disciplined days on the land led to collaborations with photographers of London-based ad agency M&C Saatchi. That global campaign celebrated Black cowboys, and started my career as a stylist and creative director. With social marketing teams for iconic Western fashion brands Justin Boots, Durango Boots, and Wrangler. With editorial creatives of the United Kingdom’s biggest-selling black publication, Black Beauty & Hair Magazine.
Today, I serve as communications director for national not-for-profit organization Outdoor Afro. Right before that, I guided U.S. Department of Agriculture grant project Black Farmers’ Network as project manager. Ensuring Black Belt Region producers and their narratives were heard throughout national headlines.
