I've blogged for The California Journal of Women Writers, IndieReader and Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Currently, I'm a freelance Books Writer for Bustle. Check out my Bustle writer's page and take a look at some of my favorite clips below. (Please note that I am obviously putting my MA to good use with all the Shakespeare posts.)
My current position as a digital content specialist involves basically all forms of written communication: press releases, blog posts and articles, email and print marketing campaigns, video and podcast scripts, social media messaging, etc. I also do some video storyboarding and have produced and edited a podcast. Want to see some current clips? Contact me for more information.
I also interned with the Trenton-based recycling company TerraCycle, where I did PR, publicity and social media management. I contributed research and copy to their 2015 coffee table book Make Garbage Great.
Between 2010-2013 I worked as a reporter and editor for The College of New Jersey's award-winning weekly newspaper The Signal. I was awarded first place in feature writing from the New Jersey Collegiate Press Association for a pair of stories I wrote about a door-to-door condom salesman. (Really.) I was also able to interview some amazing people, including John Oliver (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes) and Max Brooks (World War Z).
I have an MA in English Literature and a BA in English Literature and Communication Studies, both from The College of New Jersey. My primary academic interest is in American literature, though I've written more widely. Some favorite academic works include:
