Hi, I’m Melissa (that’s me in the blue!) and I am Midwest born, Memphis bred, writer and content marketer who splits my time between Chicago and New York City. Through my work, I build relationships at the intersection of creativity, community, and culture, with a heart for Black culture and women of color.
I’m the Founder of #blkcreatives, a collective that empowers and advocates for Black creatives across various industries. I am the co-Founder of KINDRD, an interactive, multi-service creative company powered by professional wellness with knowledge on how to reach the Black creative millennial demographic. I also help build villages and redefine the conventional standards of beauty.
I am actively pursuing opportunities in the areas of feature writing, copy writing, and social media marketing with a focus on culture, personal and professional wellness, and female empowerment. I am also open to digital and consumer marketing opportunities.
Jay Z is the greatest rapper alive. A Deeper Love Inside by Sister Souljah may be my writer’s Bible. I’m on a mission to live with intention and help tell stories that create positive change.
