I’m a storyteller.

I’ve been telling stories all my life. I started as a photographer, but now I use written words and microphones, too, to tell true stories that matter.

I write about transportation and urban planning for the Albany Business Review. You can also find me slinging stories at the Front Parlor Series, a monthly live storytelling open mic I host in my city of Troy, New York.

I studied journalism at Boston University, and have told stories for NPR’s On Point, Slate, The Dallas Morning News, DigBoston, USA Today and HuffPost. I cut my storytelling teeth growing up in New Jersey — reporting on Hurricane Sandy and the Jersey shore.
