Writing

My blog has my most recent adventures and writing pieces. On it, I aim to combine science and writing by explaining wildlife science in a digestible way. I also detail different research I aid with and outdoor adventures I take.

I am a freelance staff writer and photographer for The AD Times, the Diocese of Allentown’s newspaper, as of March 2020. Although religious content, my reporting skills and feature covering are still unbiased and well-written. Read about security training for parishes, Mary’s Way of the Cross event, and how young adults’ Holy Week looked different during 2020.

During my time at Schuylkill River Greenways, I was able to write about the importance of the outdoors and how young professionals are to act on the job, especially in the midst of a global pandemic. My article and photograph was published in the Fall 2020 issue of Pennsylvania Recreation & Parks magazine. Read my article.

In Oct. 2017, I was selected as one of 22 student fellows out of 167 applicants to attend and cover the World Conference of Science Journalists 2017 in San Francisco, Calif. I produced two pieces as coverage of the sessions: one on neurons in the brain, and the other on properly profiling scientists.

During Summer 2016, I was an intern for my hometown paper, The Reading Eagle. Click here to view my clips.

From Aug. 2014 to Jan. 2016, I wrote for West Virginia University’s student newspaper, The Daily Athenaeum, as an Arts & Entertainment beat reporter. Click here for clips.

From freshman to senior year of high school, I wrote for the weekly teen insert Voices in The Reading Eagle. During my senior year, I worked in the newsroom and was an intern as well. Click here for clips.

“Just Another Research Project” – As part of a beat reporting class in the Fall 2015 semester, our final project was a longform story. I was the environmental beat (no surprise), and this was the time that the Volkswagen scandal leaked. Researchers at WVU led this project, and I had the opportunity to take on this story and flesh it out. It was published Dec. 2015 here with the rest of my classmates’ stories.
