I started as a sports news aide at The Washington Post after completing my master’s degree in multiplatform journalism at University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism in May 2013. At the Post, I produce the popular Ask Boswell chat with renowned sports columnist Thomas Boswell, create photo galleries, monitor the Post Sports Facebook page and compile the daily newsletter and television/radio schedule, along with other tasks for the sports department.
Prior to the Post, I worked as a multimedia reporter for Capital News Service, University of Maryland’s news wire service that has numerous clients in the region, including the Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun. I was the lead reporter on the “The Other Redskins” multimedia project that looked at all the high schools in the United States that have Redskins mascots.
I was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., but grew up in Silver Spring, Md. I graduated from Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Md. in 2005 and received my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2009.
I am also a freelance writer and photographer, having covered several tennis events in the mid-Atlantic region, including the Citi Open and Washington Kastles. My passion for tennis led me to working as a media staff member at the 2011 and 2012 U.S. Open tennis championships in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., where I assisted the media relations staff for the entirety of the tournament.
Additional sports journalism experiences include interning at USA Today as a digital programmer on the sports desk in fall 2012. During that time I was also the University of Maryland varsity women’s volleyball manager, where I helped the TerpsTV team with video interviews, took stats and assisted with the team’s social media. In 2011, I interned at Voice of America, where I covered a variety of sports and worked briefly on the Americas desk.
