Born and raised in the three-states border town of Atlanta in NETX; grew up in the offices of the local newspaper where my mother worked. My first articles were published at the age of 12. I have since worked in radio, print media, and hosted my own cable-television interview show on KAQC. My specialty has turned out to be personal profile feature stories, and photography. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to meet and interview such notables as Don Henley, Jackson Browne, Artimus Pyle and Dolly Parton, as well as many others.

Hot on the heels of being presented the Key to Deep Ellum, Dallas native, Erica Wright, aka Erykah Badu, has announced a 25-city US tour with Yasiin Bey (Mos Def). The Deep Ellum Foundation honored her in February during her birthday bash at The Factory.

The “Unfollow Me Tour” launches on June 11th in San Antonio, Texas, with further dates scheduled in San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Boston, New York, Atlanta, and beyond. Performing with Erykah is bass player Braylon Lacy, one of Buddy’s 2022 Tornados.
