I am a die-hard New Yorker who loves taxi drivers with caw-fee accents and bagels with cream cheese and lox. (Rest in peace, H&H.)
I graduated from Yale University with a degree in English. In fact, I majored in the Yale Daily News, working 40 to 60 hours a week reporting and later leading coverage of New Haven, Conn. For my senior essay, I won the Theron Rockwell Field Prize, the highest humanities honor for any student in Yale’s undergraduate, graduate or professional schools. Hooray for rent money.
After graduation, I moved to Washington, D.C., and became a Metro reporter for The Washington Post. I have also worked at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Popular Science, the New Haven Register and Yale Alumni Magazine. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com, and check out my best clips here.
