About me: Covering the beat of the whole city for Patch NYC after reporting on my beloved hometown of Brooklyn. Before Patch, I was touring newspapers and other outlets in Indiana, Michigan, and New York City. Along the way, I have attended countless trials and public meetings, won a National Investigative Reporting Award, reported on televangelists flying private jets, among many other mundane, notable or strange. In my spare time, I am a big movie buff, an aspiring amateur cook and I am always on the lookout for good natural spaces.
