Freelance journalist • Photographer • Tweeter


I am a passionate, career-minded writer and digital storyteller. I’m well-sourced, and I’ve broken several major stories in the Long Island area in my career as a journalist — many of which that were later picked up by larger publications. In August 2016, I was promoted to editor of the Valley Stream Herald — a print newspaper and website — where I steered coverage of local politics, culture, religion and education for more than two years.

Most recently, I created an ambitious aural-storytelling project titled “In the Field,” a six-part podcast series that chronicles the experiences of journalists as they hustle to keep up with the industry.

When I’m not working, I’m usually working. I’m an animal lover and an amateur gardener. Three of my favorite films are Harold and MaudeEternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Breakfast Club. I like piña colodas but not getting caught in the rain.
