I am a digital reporter for NY1 — your borough, your news! — where I cover the pandemic, senior issues, child welfare and environmental issues. Before that I was staff writer for the Forward, the nonprofit Jewish news outlet, where I covered a wide range of national and local issues.
I live in Manhattan, and I was born and raised in Minnesota, which for all you New Yorkers is the one in the middle, at the top, with the little chimney. (I’m from St. Paul, not the chimney.)
I graduated with honors from the University of Chicago, where I wrote for the wonderful and groundbreaking South Side Weekly.
Hobbies include cooking, dancing, collage and travel whenever possible — that’s me in Tel Aviv on the left, and the top photograph is one I took in Patagonia.
