Through concise and compelling style I strive to find my place in the world. With over three years of experience in journalism and news writing, I strive to gain more. From student reporter to wayfaring photojournalist to daily beat writer, no task is too daunting or unwelcome.

Currently, I am staffed as a general assignment reporter at a small upstate New York daily. My hopes are to continue my uphill climb to the top, dazzling with determination and panache along the way.

I would love the opportunity to flex my literary muscles and exercise my creativity with an "outside-the-box" publication.

Traditional news or feature writing is also something I enjoy and would welcome the opportunity.
