New York, NY, USA
I'm a freelance writer based in New York City. I cover consumer, lifestyle, personal finance, and technology topics. My bread and butter is showing readers how they can become more informed and safer consumers. No matter f it's teaching them how to purchase the right humidifier for their home, warning them of the dangers of infant bath seats, or sharing the dirty little secrets of the all-inclusive vacation industry, I'll share with them how to stretch their dollar further while making educated decisions for their families. I've written for ABCnews.com, Consumer Reports, MarketWatch.com, MSNMoney.com, Techlicious.com, TIME.com, TheSimpleDollar.com, the Wall Street Journal Sunday, and Washington Post On Parenting, among others. My commentary on drug prevention, education and intervention has been featured in the Houston Chronicle, The Bay Area Citizen and The Daily News. In my free time, I also write children’s and young-adult book and television reviews for DiverseKidsBooks.org (formerly MixedDiversityReads.com). I have a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, and a bachelor's of journalism degree from The University of Texas at Austin.
