About Me

I’m a veteran journalist who’s worked at the Valley Advocate, an alternative newsweekly in western Massachusetts, since 1996. I cover news, politics and culture with a particular focus on the city of Springfield. I’ve also freelanced for a range of national and regional publications, writing about news, health, parenting and the arts. I have a master’s of arts in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.gavel
