During my time at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, I've covered everything from city politics, breastfeeding laws, education, the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of job training centers and the stock market. My interest lies in covering the financial world. I'd love to write more stories that translate opaque Wall Street terms to the average person and give them a sense of why company executives and traders do what they do.
Before coming to graduate school, I worked at a weekly, the Lowville Journal and Republican and contributed to The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York. I was one of only two reporters assigned to cover Lewis County. During my time there I reported on everything from local government to arts and culture. I covered the aftermath of a fire on Main Street which destroyed two businesses and wrote about the effect of the recession on the rural poor in Northern New York.
I also spent six months interning as a reporter for The Legislative Gazette covering the New York legislature. Throughout my six months at the Gazette I also covered the state budget, a scandal at a juvenile detention facility, and the announcement of then Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravitch’s fiscal plan. I wrote articles for the newspaper and web and took photos as part of coverage for the 2010 New York State Republican Party Convention in New York City.
