Journalist, Writer, Co-Creator of the Unmasking Series
Samantha Willis is an independent journalist and writer with a decade of print, digital, and broadcast media experience. Her work has appeared in publications including Glamour Magazine, Essence Magazine, HuffPost Life, Scalawag Magazine, and the Columbia Journalism Review, and within a wide range of Virginia-based media including WRIC ABC 8News, NBC 12 News, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Virginia Mercury, and VPM (Virginia's Home for Public Media). Willis' writing has earned multiple awards. Most recently, in April 2020, Willis earned a Virginia Press Association first place award for specialty arts writing, for her feature story on a University of Richmond photo exhibition in which city residents shared their lived experiences during the Civl Rights Era. In April 2019, her feature article about Brook Field Park, where Arthur Ashe first discovered and honed his love for tennis, helped Richmond Magazine win the Award for Journalistic Integrity and Community Service from the Virginia Press Association; it is the highest award the organization bestows. Willis has presented her work at conferences of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), World Information Architecture Day, and the University of Michigan's School of Environment & Sustainability. Willis' writing consistently centers African American history, culture and perspectives. Her reporting explores contemporary issues of interest to Black Americans – like maternal health disparities which disproportionately impact Black mothers, and environmental justice campaigns responding to large-scale petrochemical pollution in majority-Black communities in Louisiana's "Cancer Alley." Samantha elevates the historical significance of Virginia's Black-built communities including Jackson Ward in Richmond, Ziontown in Henrico County, and Vinegar Hill in Charlottesville. She has interviewed a plethora of African American history-makers: groundbreaking NASA engineer Dr. Christine Darden and "Hidden Figures" author Margot Shetterly; legendary pianist Herbie Hancock; visual artist Howardena Pindell; Freedom Rider and wife of the late Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker Theresa Walker; and civil rights activist Esther Cooper Jackson, among others. In 2016, while working full time as arts editor at Richmond Magazine, Samantha co-created the Unmasking Series, a multi-day, anti-racism dialogue and workshop program. The series began in Richmond after a blackface scandal rocked the city (#UnmaskingRVA) and continued in Charlottesville (#UnmaskingCville) in June 2018, nearly a year after white supremacist groups brought deadly violence to the city. In partnership with Virginia Humanities and the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, Willis developed and presented an Unmasking program in the south Hampton Roads region in October and November 2019. A graduate of Hanover County Public Schools, Willis studied English and Creative Writing at Radford University. She is a member of the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting, and a member of the Richmond Times-Dispatch Community Advisory Board. Willis lives in central Virginia with her husband Jamaal and three sons.
Hey there! I'm a journalist from Brazil and currently a PhD student of Media and Communication at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. I believe there is no better way to increase your sensibility about how people understand and share information, concepts, feelings and ideas than living in a new cultural environment – and putting your communication skills in practice whenever it's possible. At the same time, a perspective from "outside" also adds to the constant need of adaptation and innovation strategies that marks the communication industry, no matter where you are. Check out below some pieces of my work!

United States of America
Seasoned journalist/teacher with overseas experience and a knack for narrative
I recently returned to the U.S. after working in China since 2005, teaching English, Journalism, Business and Western Culture-related courses at three Chinese Universities, while immersing myself in the language and culture. Previously, I worked for six years as a staff reporter at the Pasadena Star-News, San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Whittier Daily News and affiliated weekly newspapers in the suburbs of Los Angeles. I juggled a handful of different city beats, covering both breaking news and features, in addition to spending time on the business desk. My beats included everything from profiles of up-and-coming local musicians to the opaque dealings of secretive city councils. I parsed business earnings reports of major corporations and dug into the impact of the skyrocketing housing prices on local people. From an in-depth look at the behind-the-scenes development of a local high school musical from casting to curtain calls to quirky profiles of one-armed jugglers and a deaf pianist, I love finding the human story at the heart of every decision. In addition to daily deadlines, I frequently contributed photographs, video and social media presence. I have a bachelor's degree in print journalism and a master's degree in intercultural studies. I have a passion for helping people to gain a better understanding of the world and one another.

Arts professional: former gallerist, now art dealer/advisor & arts writer
Widely experienced arts professional and a former Melbourne-based gallerist, I am tertiary educated, have extensive international travel and residency and, in excess of 20 years working within the Australian art market, and latterly, the Asian art market, across both the primary and secondary sectors. In the past 3 years, my focus has been the international blue chip sector, managing private transactions for internationally-based collections. Attaining a BA with a major in Art History (LaTrobe University, Melbourne), I undertook post-graduate studies in Sociology and completed a thesis for her B.Litt. (Hons.) degree (Deakin University, Melbourne). Thereafter, I commenced a Post-Graduate Diploma in Museumology and Curatorship at the University of Melbourne. Alongside this, I also undertook studies in Shakespearean literature at the University of Cambridge in the U.K. Over a period of 20 years, residency in London, New York and Singapore has availed an appreciation of the global art market, with regular attendance at various major international art fairs, such as Frieze London & New York, Art Cologne, Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Stage Singapore, and the Korean International Art Fair (KIAF). My expertise rests with a working knowledge of contemporary art practices inclusive of painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper, in addition to a nuanced understanding of the unique Australian Indigenous art practices.
