For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer. In 2017, I served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Point Park Globe, an award-winning student publication reaching over 1,500 people weekly both online and in print. I won a 2018 Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Award for Breaking News. For my full credentials, check out my resume.

A final letter from the editor…, Dec. 5, 2017
“I’ve always been far more interested in the bookends of life than I have been with the in between bits. It makes sense for my chosen field, I guess.
