Who I am: Reporter with the Albany Business Review in New York’s state Capital, where I cover money, technology and restaurants. 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 from Boston University in 2014 with a bachelors in journalism and a minor in political science.
What I’ve covered: Everything from $1 billion e-commerce acquisitions, to the financial problems of a college with the worst credit rating in the country, and the multi-billion dollar wedding industry. I wrote about baby seagulls and a mysterious Google barge at the Portland Press Herald and statehouse politics for the Lowell Sun. I was editor-in-chief of Boston University’s independent student newspaper, The Daily Free Press, where I learned how to manage writers and live off 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 executives and presidents to startup founders, every day is different. It is exciting to see how Albany is growing into a tech hub while grappling with its image as a government town. The Business Review is the go-to source for those changes.
After deadline: In my free time I love traveling, cooking, trying out new restaurants and dream house hunting. I’ve fallen off a horse in Iceland, got lost in Berlin and swam in fjords in Saguenay, Quebec. I’m always looking for my next adventure.
