ABOUT ME

A five-time award-winning journalist, I'm the marketing and communications associate at Fordham University School of Law and a monthly contributor at The Red Hook Star-Revue (a print newspaper that has a monthly circulation of 10,000 in Brooklyn, Mahattatan, and Long Island). 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) [now known as The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York], where I honed my print, broadcast and audio story-telling skills.

Bylines have appeared with The Tablet newspaper, BKLYNER (prior to its closure in September 2021), DNAinfo New York (prior to its closure in November 2017), NYCity News Service, and BUST Magazine. Select audio pieces have been heard on the airwaves of 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 selected live during AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead: Talking Dead" television series—Season 2, Episode 19 (original air date: April 24, 2016)—nationwide, on television and AMC On Demand, at the time. Here's the proof!
