Professional Experience

I spent four years as a staff writer for Village Voice Media where I wrote both award-winning long-form investigative pieces and short-form blog posts. I specialize in crime stories, covering political campaigns and investigating governmental institutions. I'm an easy edit and a good story-teller.
