I've worked for The Business Insider,, CNN's San Francisco bureau and the U.S. Department of State, and had clips & photos published in the New York Daily News,, and Irish America Magazine, among others. Before that, I obtained a B.A. in Mass Communications and History from the University of California, Berkeley and a M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University, where I served as art director for the student magazine, Plated.
