Multimedia Journalist/Public Relations Consultant
Introduction
I'm a New York-based multimedia journalist and freelance writer. I cover science and technology for FoxNews.com and just completed my Master of Arts from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. My work has been published by The Atlantic, Yahoo! News, CBSNews.com, Berkshire Magazine, and Brown Medicine Magazine. I was a Reporter/Designer/Editor for The Berkshire Eagle from 2012-2013, and beyond journalism, I work in PR, currently serving as a freelance Public Relations Consultant for Hancock Shaker Village, a living history museum in Massachusetts. Before my time at the Village, I was the Press Agent for Berkshire Actors Theatre's 2012 Summer Season. About me: Born in Chile, raised in the Berkshires, movie buff, news junkie and Brown University alum. Follow me on Twitter @brimastroianni and check out my work at brianmastroianni.com!
