I am a journalist and teacher with more than a decade of professional writing experience. I have been a staff reporter at the New York Daily News since 2014, covering politics and breaking news. I also teach a journalism class at Brooklyn College. I started my journalism career when I was 14 and have worked in several states. I have a tough but fair mentor style that helps young writers work efficiently, think concretely and push to their best work while still staying true to their unique voice.
