Terrance is a Minnesota native, with deep roots in the Magnolia state. Originally born in Jackson, he was raised in Minneapolis following a career move by his parents. As an only child, Terrance has always considered himself to be rather shy, but says he was somehow able to find comfort in public speaking.
His love for the news developed very early in his life while doing a weekly current events assignment in fourth grade. It was then that he knew he'd pursue journalism because of the joy he felt from those assignments and the admiration he had for the anchormen he watched daily.
Terrance got his first taste of the newsroom when he interned at 16 WAPT in Jackson under the supervision of Anchor, Stephanie Maxewell and Producer, Pernà Roberson. He credits that priceless hands on experience, coupled with the guidance of his advisor Karlos Sanders for preparing him to work in the field.
Terrance began his journey into becoming a journalist at Tougaloo College as a staff writer and editor for the Harambee Newspaper, a campus wide publication, under Department Chair, Mr. Eric Stringfellow. He also served in the capacity of an Anchor and Reporter for the Harambee Television network. After graduating from Tougaloo College with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Terrance landed his first job at WABG-TV in Greenville, as a General Assignment Reporter.
During his spare time, he enjoys listening to music, reading, and catching up with friends. He also enjoys community service, and encouraging young people to go after their dreams.
His family is a big part of his life, and because he's a self-proclaimed "mama's boy" that especially includes his mother, Janet.
Terrance is a member of the NAACP, National Association of Black Journalists, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, and Power House Church of God in Christ, in Jackson.
