I’m a freelance reporter with a drive and ethic that’s allowed me to practice my craft in some unique corners of the industry. I most frequently report for outlets in upstate New York including the Ithaca Voice, WRVO, WSKG, the Ithaca Times, and the Hornell Evening Tribune. After a brief stint studying and working on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., I continue to explore and master more avenues of news coverage in the southern tier and Finger Lakes regions of New York. Meanwhile, I’m a student at Ithaca College in New York where I double major in journalism and economics. I’m always searching for new clients or professional opportunities. Please feel free to contact me anytime!
