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, Greenpointers.com and more, including branded content for Brooklyn Magazine.

Most recently I profiled pizza enthusiast and entrepreneur Paulie Gee as well as 33 1/3 book author Walter Holland. I also cover 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 B.F.A. in Writing from Pratt Institute and a M.S. in Publishing from New York University. I currently live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with my dog, Luigi.
