Work has previously appeared: Daily Newspaper, Community Newspaper, National Magazine, Local/Regional Magazine

My work has appeared in The Kansas City Star, Northwestern magazine, Sunset magazine, Spirit magazine (Southwest Airlines), The Lawrence Journal-World, The Sun Newspapers (Kansas), The Independence Examiner, The Kansas City Jewish Chronicle and The St. Louis Jewish Light. I'm a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. I'm a sharp reporter who can write on a variety of subjects. I've done different kinds of pieces, from front-of-the-book items to profiles to features. I'll adapt my writing voice to any publication, whether it's serious news or pop culture. I have experience both freelancing and writing on a news beat. I also shoot most of my own photos. In 2009, I received two awards from the Kansas City Press Club SPJ chapter in the non-daily print news category-- a gold in general reporting and a silver in features. In 2010, I received three awards-- a gold in entertainment, a bronze in general reporting and an honorable mention in features.
