Digital Journalist


I’m a full-time journalism instructor at Suffolk County Community College and 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.

In 2017, I 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 courses at my undergraduate alma mater, Stony Brook University, as well as at Hofstra University and LIU Post.

I am a board member of the Press Club of Long Island, previously serving three terms as its president, and I held two stints on the national board of the Society of Professional Journalists.

I‘ve won numerous awards for writing, blogging and social media, and received the SPJ Regional Director of the Year Award in 2005, as well as PCLI’s Phil Spahn Award. I am also a Long Island Business News 40 under 40 honoree.

In 2017, I was inducted into the PCLI Contributor’s Wing of the Long Island Journalism Hall of Fame.

Additionally, 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.
