I strive to be a connector. 

As a writer and editor I work to connect readers to new ideas, unique opinions, and engaging stories.

I have published at COLORS Magazine, Quartz.com, FreeWilliamsburg.com, and more, including branded content (under a pseudonym) for Brooklyn Magazine.

Most recently I profiled the author Walter Holland for JamBase.com and covered the North Brooklyn arts scene for Greenpointers.com.

During my four years as Director of Content and Marketing for The Yard coworking space I embedded myself in tech and business news, working with hundreds of companies including Uber, Samsung, and OKCupid to create events and publish original branded content. Most recently I led a complete redesign of The Yard’s website and wrote and produced a series of member profile videos.

I produce content: writing for print and the web, producing and directing video, curating exhibitions, coordinating events and conferences for creatives and business owners.

Having moved to New York City in 2000, I have a BFA in Writing from Pratt Institute and a MS in Publishing from New York University. I currently live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with my dog, Luigi.
