I’ve been a journalist for a decade, the last half of which was spent as a writer and editor for ESPN. I’m now a Master of Science candidate at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and a freelance writer and multimedia producer.
Prior to working for ESPN, I was the sports editor for the Hudson (N.Y.) Register-Star. Before that I spent time as a general assignment and cops/courts reporter for a few different publications, living and working all over New York’s Hudson Valley.
I received my Bachelor of Arts (Political Science) from Vassar College in 2002 and a Master of Liberal Arts (Journalism) from the Harvard University Extension School in 2011.
Apart from various ESPN properties, my work has appeared in the print and/or online editions of the following publications: USA Today, Sports Illustrated, Taconic Press, Chatham Courier, The Perpetual Post, Catskill Daily Mail, Neighborhood Beatbox, Ann Arbor News, The Sixth Borough, The Boston Comedy Blog, What’s Up Magazine, Cook Food Every Day and Punchline Magazine.
I was a stringer for the Associated Press in Boston from 2007-2010, working events like the Boston Marathon, the Head of the Charles Regatta, and scores of college football and basketball games. In this capacity I covered most of Jeremy Lin’s home games at Harvard, and I have the gushing emails to prove I thought he could play in the NBA. (But even I never saw Linsanity coming.)
I’ve thrown a few stories up here as placeholders and hope to add more soon. I’m always looking for new stories to tell and new ways to tell them. To pass along a tip, send me an email.
