What I Do
I have been a cultural affairs reporter mainly in the North East region for over 15 years. In the 1990s, as journalism was becoming more visual, I added photography as another dimension to reporting. I divide my time between lifestyle reporting, blogging and editing for the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and independent work on socially conscious photojournalism projects.I am a graduate of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. As a reporter, stringer and columnist, I have covered local government, health and science, college and professional sports, and cuisine. I have reported on the New England fisheries, been the first female columnist for a major boxing magazine and a food columnist for the Nashua Telegraph, where I continue to write about cookbooks and food trends. My stories have appeared in the New York Daily News, Boston Globe, Village Voice, Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun, Hudson Valley Magazine and elsewhere.
My photographs have been published in the New York Daily News, Boston Globe, Nashua Telegraph, Lowell Sun, Bangor Daily News, Runner’s World, New Hampshire Magazine, Poughkeepsie Journal and Broadband Communities magazine. Photos from my project “Homeless, Hobos and Travelers with Pets” project have appeared in newspapers such as the New York Daily News and been exhibited at Fashion Institute of Technology and the Griffin Photography Museum in Winchester, MA.
