Born and raised a New Jerseyan, now a Chicagoan. Never thought I’d be here, but I love it and can see myself staying for some time… but not too much time. I’m soon moving to D.C., then maybe to Europe. I am a journalist because I want to see the world, be inspired, and live with open eyes. I am a journalist because I want to report all that is true and beautiful in the world. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy my journey.
My journalistic writing can be found here, but this blog is for something more creative: for my musings and for your entertainment.
Interests: economics, small businesses, start-ups, health, fitness, science, education, the arts and a splash of politics.
Personal Interests: running, writing (journalistic pieces and creative writing), reading, spending time with friends watching football, baseball, basketball, and above all, Spanish soccer.
Things I like to read & recommended books: the New Yorker, anything E.B. White, anything Kurt Vonnegut, The Imperfectionists, Like Water for Chocolate
I move around a lot. I went to college in central PA at Bucknell University, where I started pre-med but ended up receiving a BA in english and economics (which explains my interests!) I am now a master’s candidate at Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, for an MSJ in broadcast and business and economic reporting.
