A writer with a passion for reporting, grammar and bringing stories that matter to the masses
From the time I was little, I loved to tell stories. My mother would tell you I was just a liar, but I prefer storyteller if it makes me sound better.
My passion for storytelling led me to tell my own stories while pursuing a degree in creative writing at Binghamton University. But, I realized that I hated being the center of attention, and found out that I loved learning about and telling the stories of others.
Now, I'm graduating with a master's degree in magazine, newspaper and online journalism from Syracuse University. I love writing about urban affairs and health news, but could also talk about avocado toast and winged eyeliner for the rest of my life if you let me.
I've written about renegade churches and ambitious fourth graders trying to fight poverty, but I've also declared my love for Miley Cyrus and day drinking in print. My mother would say I need to focus my interests. I just say I'm curious.
But most of all, my mother would be proud that as a journalist, I'm finally telling the truth.
