TV Appearances



Sharing a Piece of History

As a longtime member of Ancestry.com and an expert in African-American genealogy, I represented the brand online and in several national television ads, promoting its family-history research and DNA-testing services. In this 30-second TV spot, I shared the true story of Marianne Gaspard, an ancestor I discovered with Ancestry's help. Versions of this spot aired more than 5,000 times nationwide, including on primetime network and cable TV and on PBS stations.

Redefining Possible

As part of a regional ad campaign, I represented the University of California–San Francisco, a globally acclaimed hospital network respected for its cutting-edge research and medical breakthroughs. I also appeared on the UCSF website, on billboards throughout San Francisco, and in primetime television ads, including during the World Series.

Finding My Roots

In this Ancestry ad supporting the acclaimed PBS series "Finding Your Roots" — hosted by Harvard University’s Prof. Henry Louis Gates Jr. — I am featured along with several other Ancestry spokespeople. Catch a glimpse of me flipping through the pages of a book.
