I'm a multimedia journalist currently based out of Auburn, New York. I work for The Citizen newspaper covering Cayuga County government, the environment and breaking news, and I freelance for the National Audubon Society. I'm a current member of the Society of Environmental Journalists. I also teach yoga, figure skate and bird watch for fun.

I moved to upstate New York from Bethesda, Maryland in 2015. I used to work as a digital coordinator for Burness, a communications firm that represents nonprofit organizations. Most of my duties centered around video production, photography and social media. I have my Master's degree in magazine, newspaper and online journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I have Bachelor's degrees in English and journalism with a concentration in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Connecticut.
