I was born and raised in the projects of New York City, playing video games before they could be played on televisions and designing BBS boards and gopher sites prior to the Web going world wide. As an early adopter and one of the few women of color web designers in the early 90's, I've been involved with tech and networks for over 20 years.
My experience includes consultant and speaker in tech, media (including social media), politics and diversity. In addition I Founded Digital Sisters/Sistas Inc. and a web multimedia management firm (MHG).
In some of my more interesting roles I was the web goddess (the original creator of the term) for Politically Black.com a site that was sold to Netivation (NTVN) a large media company as one of the web transactions in the late 1990's that later went public. NTVN's Votenet division was later sold to Politics.com. I also created the game TechnoDemic, a multimedia competition to help youth learn technology and programming terms.
I speak and provide trainings on topics that include social media strategies with a particular expertise in reaching diverse populations, broadband, women in tech, the impact of apps designs, technology and social software on communities across the country and more.
I've appeared on media shows like WETA, KPFA, NPR, Women's Radio and Grit TV. I've presented on various topics including “Tweet This Change”, “Social Media ROI”, “Social Media Women of Color”, “Google Apps for Nonprofits”, and “Technology Savvy Secures Economic Stability”.
