ABOUT ME

I'm a reporter for The Tablet, the award-winning newspaper of the Roman Catholic Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens. I'm also a web content writer for Fordham University School of Law and a contributor at The Red Hook Star-Revue (a physical newspaper that has a monthly circulation of 10,000). 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.

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 web pieces 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 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!

Beat interests include:

When I could, I always tried to tie my love for pop culture with American and British literature during my time as an English major at Siena College (2012-2016). Below are topics I wrote non-published, academic research papers about:

  • Lacking an Identity in "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland"
  • Betrayal of Trust and Loyalty - and its Effects - in Young Adult Literature
  • Film Depictions of Queen Elizabeth I and Audiences’ Intrepretations of Them
  • War in Pop Culture
  • Shakespeare Meets "Sons of Anarchy"
  • The Suburban Home: The Failing Foundation for Public and Private Spheres and Identities in "Revolutionary Road" and "Far From Home"
  • Suffering in the Suburbia of "Edward Scissorhands" from Exerted Self-Control
  • Vampires May Not Have a Heart Beat, but Do Have Feelings: Exploring Homosexuality and Homosociality in Vampire Literature and Film
  • Rick Grimes: The Best, Inhumane Zombie Apocalypse Hero in "The Walking Dead"
