Having worn many different hats in my career thus far - editor-in-chief, fact-checker, reporter, managing editor - I bring to the table a diverse set of skills, a passion for uncovering the truth, a broad knowledge of many subjects and a commitment to producing polished work. I have a background in editing, writing and reporting for both newspapers and magazines throughout the New York Metro area, with my work appearing in SmartMoney magazine, Reader's Digest and The New York Daily News. I have reported on the sub-prime housing crisis, air travel, bargain hunting, crime and court proceedings, health care reform and inspirational personal interest stories. I hold a B.A. in print journalism from Hofstra University with a minor in political science, and have also studied broadcast news and libel law. Please contact me about any freelance writing, editing or fact-checking assignments. I think I would be a great asset to your company as I am hardworking, intelligent, talented and passionate about my work. I also understand the unique challenges that reporters and editors face to provide our readers with only the highest quality of information in a timely and engaging manner and I know how to deliver on these goals.
