I'm a writer, editor and sometimes designer living in in the Greater Boston area. Currently, I work for Harvard University's Program on Education Policy and Governance at the Harvard Kennedy School in Cambridge, Mass., as their Web, Data and Research Manager. In my own time, I write and create graphics.
Writing: I serve as editor and webmaster at Static and Feedback, an online music magazine. I run a sports blog, Saves and Shutouts, that is updated with horrifying irregularity. From 2012 to 2018, I was a sports columnist at The Standard-Times in New Bedford, Mass. And in 2010-11, I covered the Boston Bruins for RantSports.com.
Editing: From 2009 to 2012, I worked at SouthCoastToday.com as a content producer, web reporter and videographer. I was previously the content manager for Dynamic Page Solutions, an SEO company in Mesa, Ariz. I've also worked on several websites, serving as editor, writer and content manager.
Design: I create graphics on request and to keep myself sharp, and those can be found in the Design section. In a previous life, I was a night editor and page designer at The Standard-Times. And I doodle.
I'm an avid music fan, and when I'm not spinning an LP, I'm noodling on the guitar and harmonica.
If you'd like to know what I'm currently working on, or are requesting a resume, please contact me. If you're just poking around, that's okay, too.
