I'm a NYC-based journalist studying at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. A native of the Philadelphia suburbs, I've lived in Ghana, Ireland and most recently Thailand. Because of the time I've spent abroad, I have an interest in international reporting.
A lifelong reader of poetry with a bachelor's degree in English, I believe that the pursuit of truth closely aligns verse and lede.
Poetry demands a nuanced and careful voice; in an age of information where aggregating facts is no longer the media’s role, finding and reporting a story that readers can’t find in the arteries of Google is essential, and one that requires a poet’s empathy, humanity and commitment to the truth.
