I'm a journalist and freelance video editor based in Queens, New York. I'm a part-time producer and editor for CUNY TV, the largest university-based public television station in the US, airing on cable throughout NYC and streaming online. Currently I primarily produce and edit segments for the neighborhood series, DiverseCITY. Earlier at CUNY TV, I was a producer for a talk show hosted by WNYC's Brian Lehrer, and for Shades of U.S.. I've also written stories for Curbed NY, City Limits and elsewhere. My documentary, District 26: A New York Election Story screened at the Queens World Film Festival. I'm a 2013 alum of the CUNY (now Newmark) Graduate School of Journalism. See my resume here.
