I’m a writer based in Buffalo, New York. Prior to moving here in 2009, I worked for newspapers in Las Vegas, Southern California, Seattle, Newark (New Jersey) and Allentown (Pennsylvania). Today, from my home on the Great Lakes, I use ink and pixels to tell vivid, thought-provoking stories.

I’m not available for assignments right now, but I’d be happy to put you in touch with other reporters in Buffalo who are interested in freelance opportunities.
