About me

img_1726.jpgI’m a New York-based writer, editor, triathlete, artist, and puppet maker. Since graduating from Columbia University’s School of Journalism in 2006, I’ve worked with some the world’s biggest (and smallest) news organizations. As an editor at The Wall Street Journal from 2011 to 2016, I wrote and edited food, arts and news coverage, collaborating with digital and photo editors to create print and online packages. Other publications include Getty Images, Mansion Global, The Real Deal, Family Circle, ARTNews, Jane magazine, The New York Sun, and The Union Voice. I started my New York life as the assistant director of the Columbia Publishing Course.

I’ve been to all 50 states, competed in more than 15 triathlons, and have made crabs, cats, otters, birds, and other creatures into puppets for several off-off-(off-)Broadway shows. In the summer of 2016, I was a Voices of the Wilderness Artist in Residence in Alaska, with a puppetry focus. I’ve also been a moderator at the Newburyport Literary Festival for 11 years, and am a 2000 graduate of St. John’s College in Santa Fe, NM.
