Digital Journalist


I’m a versatile freelance writer and editor with a passion for innovation. You can find me covering everything from food to real estate to Long Island history for outlets including Newsday, Long Island Pulse magazine, InnovateLI and RiverheadLocal.

I recently earned a master’s degree in communications, with a concentration in journalism innovation, from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Our courses dived into everything from project management to social media to 360-degree video and podcasts. 

Previously, I was the online editor for local and products at Newsday, executive producer of News 12 Interactive and editor of Long Island Business News. I also had a stint as editor of The Long Islander newspaper chain.

I’ve also taught journalism at my alma mater, Stony Brook University, as well as at Hofstra University and LIU Post.

I’m currently a board member of the Press Club of Long Island, the local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists — serving three terms as its president, and I’ve held two stints on the national SPJ board.

I chair the Martin Buskin Committee for Campus Journalism at Stony Brook, and I’m a member of the Energeia Partnership, a regional stewardship group.

I’m also a big lover of history, genealogy and my grandparents’ old recipes.
