Professional Experience

In 140 characters or fewer, or the length of a Tweet, I would explain myself as: Northwestern MSJ '17. Cornell ILR '15. Former Editor in Chief, The Cornell Daily Sun. Reporter, journalism enthusiast. Social media fiend. ? I am a recent graduate from Cornell University where I focused my time working as a sports journalist, and was selected to run both the editorial and business sides of the student newspaper as the Editor in Chief. During that time, I also covered collegiate wrestling for The New York Times, and spent my summers interning and writing for USA Today Opinion and Yahoo Entertainment. ? Since my graduation in 2015, I have been working as the Communications Coordinator for Whistle Sports — a sports community based around social influencers and professional athletes who are creating videos that live on social media. I also freelance for The Drum —a global media platform and the biggest marketing website in Europe. Currently, I am pursuing my Master’s of Science in Journalism at Northwestern
