Who I am: Reporter with the Albany Business Review in New York’s state Capital, where I cover money and technology. The Business Review is a digital-first business journal with a weekly-print edition — one of 43 American City Business Journals.
Where I’ve been: Graduated Boston University with a degree in journalism and a minor in political science in 2014.
What I’ve covered: Everything from baby seagulls and a mysterious Google barge at the Portland Press Herald to statehouse politics for the Lowell Sun. I was editor-in-chief of BU’s independent student newspaper, The Daily Free Press, where I learned how to manage people and live off very little sleep. I’ve interned at the Thomson Reuters Foundation in London, the Albany Times Union in New York and 90.9 WBUR, Boston’s NPR affiliate.
Average day: From meeting with bank CEOs and presidents to startup founders; every day is different. It is exciting to see how Albany is changing from a blue-collar, government town to a tech hub with emerging industries in nanotechnology and cloud computing. The Business Review is the go-to source for those changes.
After deadline: In my free time I enjoy traveling, cooking, trying out new restaurants and dream house hunting.
