Professional Experience

A Boston-based journalist, I usually cover local politics and protests but have also written on music and social media. The best workout of my life may have been covering the Boston May Day march, which had me constantly running from the front to the back of a parade made up of hundreds, in the rain--anything to get the story. I'm also a published creative writer.
