Currently I'm a staff news writer for The Red Hook Star-Revue, a physical newspaper that reaches 8,000 monthly readers. In December 2017 I earned my M.A. Degree in Journalism - with a concentration in arts and culture reporting - from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism (New York, NY), where I honed my print, broadcast and audio story-telling skills. Prior to graduate school, I was a Class of 2016 graduate of Siena College (Loudonville, NY), where I attained a B.A. Degree in English with an English Honors Certificate; minored in Marketing, Writing and Communications; and achieved Magna Cum Laude at commencement.
Thanks to my hands-on experiences in journalism through my previous internships - plus the practical marketing knowledge attained in my undergraduate classes - I'm working in the journalism field and hope to pursue social media marketing more in the future. I look forward to using all my journalistic skills while exploring and reporting on arts, culture and entertainment.
I've freelanced for BKLYNER, DNAinfo New York, NYCity News Service and have also covered feminism-related topics at BUST Magazine. Select audio pieces have been heard on WHCR 90.3 FM NY The Voice of Harlem and WHDD 91.9 FM Robin Hood Radio.
Select personal tweets have been featured in: Bleacher Report, The Daily Edge [Ireland], and Twitter Moments ["Clueless" 22nd anniversary - 7/19/17]. A personal tweet was also featured during AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead: Talking Dead" television series - Season 2, Episode 19 (air date: April 24, 2016) - nationwide on television and AMC on demand at the time -- here's the proof.
