January 2016 - Now

I fell in love with journalism in college. James Joyce drove me from being an English major into the J-school, after a slight detour in the landscape architecture department. 


I have worked at two of the most well-known places in the journalism world - The Washington Post and USA TODAY. From those places, I have learned the value of accurate, quality, lively writing.
