Since I joined the Tampa Bay Times in 2017, I have always loved writing about unique people and stories within diverse communities around Tampa Bay that typically get overlooked by media outlets. It is my passion to bring such stories, and specifically those within the African American community to the limelight. That passion extends to the world of sports where I incorporate my previous experience as a college athlete to tell stories about the culture and experience of our Tampa Bay area sports teams. But, I tell those stories a little bit differently by engaging audiences either through an online story or on-camera through many of the Times’ social media accounts like Instagram and Facebook. You might also be familiar with my alter-ego, “Dr. Delay” who listens to the many traffic complaints and pet peeves from our readers regarding Tampa Bay’s highways and byways, and addresses them in a weekly column. If that’s not enough, you can hear me deliver local news weekly on iheartradio’s 95.7 The Beat and occasionally on the Times’ Flash Briefing channel on your Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices. Like many here, I’m not a Floridian, but a proud Baltimore native who will side-eye you if you don’t use Old Bay seasoning on your seafood.
