About

 

Lover of fading mediums.

I've been a storyteller, however unconventionally, my whole life. I grew up with an obsession for classical ballet, and spent summers studying at the Boston Ballet and Joffrey Ballet. That led me to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where I received a BFA in dance, and choreographed for the school's professional troupe, the Second Avenue Dance Company. After graduation, I performed in some of the city's iconic theaters, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Lincoln Center and Baryshnikov Arts Center.

Many leotards and one short stint in public relations later, I became an editor at Dance Magazine, where I spent five years. Currently, I'm pursuing my MS at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, where I'm focusing on narrative writing and audio reporting. I'm particularly interested in subcultures, cultural and arts reporting. On the most basic level, I'm interested in stories of human resiliency.

You can find my work in Dance Magazine, Thrillist, The Guardian and espnW.
