About Me

As a multimedia journalist, I enjoy reporting on the stories that reflect market trends and cultural patterns through audio and print media. My work has been featured in Crain's New York Business, Politico, SheKnows, amNewYorkCultured Magazine and Follow South Jersey Magazine.

Most recently, I wrote about public health and housing in New York City, focusing on the financial and political components that played a role in these issues. My stories followed mental health developments and trends in the workplace as well as the migrant crisis and ongoing sanitation issues. I also feel passionate about arts and culture and have reported on the writer's strike and financial struggles on Broadway and in arts programs. 

This portfolio features a range of my published work. Feel free to glance through by clicking on the sidebar and browsing through the different pages. If you would like to get in touch with me or offer any feedback, please use the “Contact Me” page in the sidebar to write me a note, and I’ll send an email response promptly.
