I’m a born and raised New Yorker who has always had the unreasonable notion that I can help change the world…in the process, I’ve found that I also have a knack for observing it. My journalism career began at age five, when I started writing stories and slipping them under my neighbors’ doors. Since then, I’ve graduated from the New School (2011) with a BA in Journalism, and write/have written for Forbes, The New York Observer, The New York Times, Salon, Newsday, Teen Vogue, Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune, SCENE Magazine, Broadway.com, Commercial Observer, New York Press, Narratively, Time Out NY, amNewYork, The Lo Down, New York Post, the Downtown Express, the Villager, Chelsea Now and Social Life. I was also the Editor for this year’s Concierge Edition of Avenue Magazine.
While I cover everything from dining to culture and all things New York, I am most passionate about philanthropy, charities, nonprofits, and inspirational people.
