Hi there and welcome!

I’ve been writing for the Boston Globe since 2005, and have been a regular contributor since 2008, both in print and for the Globe’s Your Town hyperlocal effort. You can read a sample of the hundreds of pieces I’ve written by visiting this site’s Clips section.

In 2015, I became a news producer for bostonglobe.com, and now work in the newsroom with a bunch of great people. In Sept. 2015, I started getting my masters in Media Innovation at Northeastern University.

And in June 2011, I started an independent local news blog about my blue-collar hometown, Rockland, Mass. Although the blog is now defunct, the Facebook page for Welcome to Rockland continues to garner new likes almost every day. I will be relaunching the site as my graduate project with an innovative, multimedia approach to illustrate how the opiate crisis has affected one small town that’s been devastated like so many other communities.

In between all of the above, I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in Dec. 2012, and documented the highs and lows of that experience at ohcrapitscancer.com. Writing for that endeavor was some of the most fulfilling writing I’ve done.

I also have two kids, and they are wicked cute.
