Hey there. I’m a freelance writer based on Long Island — a long, island-shaped suburb of New York City with beautiful beaches and even better bagels. I’ve written for The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, VFW Magazine, Long Island Press, DMN, The Valley Stream Herald, Newsday and Stagebuddy. I like making words do things. Over the last five years, I’ve worked as a full-time reporter/editor for various print and digital publications covering everything from ad tech to the White House.

In 2017, I rode the podcasting wave and created “In the Field,” a narrative series chronicling six journalists’ hustle to keep up with the industry. Notwithstanding my own bias, I feel comfortable saying that it’s pretty good. You can listen to all six episodes here. I mean, what else have you got going on today?

I live on Long Island with my plant-children, but I see California whenever I close my eyes. The non-work things I enjoy: Gardening, cycling, sunbathing, binging (TV, celebrity profiles, various junk foods), playing music, reading Gentlemen’s Quarterly and Buddhist self-help books.
