Professional Experience

The stories I have published reflect my unique interests, unparalleled reporting abilities and wide array of skills. I've covered everything from in-depth profiles of New York's most notorious characters to creating visually impressive collages and infographics about various travel and lifestyle subjects. I've worked with highly regarded media sites including The New Yorker,, and the Huffington Post. I've also cut my teeth with promising start-ups like Narratively and Mashable. I'm a storyteller with a deep understanding highlighting a story audiences can sink their teeth into. My strength is reporting. Call it my midwestern charm, but I have an innate ability to gain access to people and places that normally turn away journalists (i.e. Bernie Goetz). And in all of my pieces, I am able to mimic the style of the media outlet while maintaining my own distinct voice. While my forte is editorial, I have been producing branded content for the last year.
