I’m a New York City–based editor, reporter and photographer with extensive experience leading editorial teams and producing/packaging stories across a full spectrum of traditional and digital media, including magazines, newspapers, public radio and the web. I’ve also doubled as a communications manager in university, government and nonprofit settings, developing and implementing internal and external communications plans; advancing organizational priorities through effective messaging strategies; and promoting stories through social media, video and other channels to enhance brand awareness.
As a journalist I’ve written, edited or produced for The Christian Science Monitor, NPR’s “The Takeaway,” TimeOut New York, Harper’s, Wired and many other media outlets—and led an award-winning community newspaper on the West Side of Manhattan called Chelsea Now. My communications work includes stints with FEMA, V-Day Men and Rutgers University–Newark.
Along the way I’ve produced stories on politics, immigration, labor, affordable housing, real estate, education, race/ethnicity, LGBT issues, science, arts/culture, human rights and the environment. I also shoot images for many of my stories, along with photo essays. Read Full Bio >

E D I T O R I A L
As Assistant Editorial/Media Director for the College of Arts & Sciences (2011–present), I built a communications plan from scratch, implemented it across multiple platforms, and created a cohesive visual identity and messaging strategy that helped the school’s visibility and fundraising soar.
CHELSEA NOW newspaper
As Editor (2006–2008), I launched this award-winning community newspaper on the West Side of Manhattan, put it on the NYC media map, and broke stories that fueled reforms on major issues while making the paper a must-read for area residents and politicians.
