I am a contributing writer for Metroland, an alternative newsweekly covering New York's Capital Region where I also previously worked as an Editorial Intern. I have a background in journalism and communications with experience in social media, hired blogging, editorial management, print and web layout/design, and literary editing.  I am the former Executive Editor of The Chronicle at The College of Saint Rose, where I learned both how to run a newspaper and also how to survive on very little sleep. I was the 2008 recipient of the Gary McLouth Writer of the Year Award for my work with The Chronicle, and was selected to participate in a student panel at the 2009 Associated College Press National College Journalism Conference.
