Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm looking for writing opportunities in literary journalism. I like to read pieces that are complex and nuanced and those are the kind of pieces I'm interested in writing.

As an experienced writer on urban, political and psychological conflict, my reported pieces, narrative journalism and commentary have been published in a variety of print and online publications including Metro New York, Womensenews.org, Ironminds.com, Africana.com, New York Daily News, Newsday, San Francisco Chronicle, Buffalo News and Alternet.com. I have worked with many different editors and consistently produce writing that rarely needs much editing. My editing experience includes staff editor positions at the New York Daily News and Newsday.

I also teach writing at a community college in Pennsylvania. In 2008 I completed my MA in English with a thesis on the novels of Joyce Carol Oates.
