I am a recent graduate of Wesleyan University in Connecticut. There, I was very involved with our student newspaper, The Wesleyan Argus, and served as the Editor-in-Chief in the fall of 2021. I have freelanced for Vice, Washington City Paper, Insider, The Middletown Press, and more. This past summer, I was an editorial intern on Slate Magazine’s science and health desk.
Although I’m more of a generalist—I enjoy writing about moms who unironically like Minions just as much as I like writing about monkeypox misconceptions —a common thread throughout my work is my desire to learn from others. Whether it’s talking to anosmics about their day-to-day life, or understanding why a professor decided to name a species after Amanda Gorman, I love connecting with sources, learning about what drives them, and sharing it in a story. To me, every article is a human interest story, whether it’s defined as such or not.
