I'm an undergraduate student at Northeastern University where I am pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism with a minor in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.  I am currently participating in a 6-month co-op program as The World's Digital Production Assistant. 

My first reporting position was as stringer for my tiny hometown's weekly paper, The Littleton Independent. After covering selectmen's and planning board meetings - where I was often the only attendee - I accepted a co-op position at The Boston Globe's North Metro bureau, where I continued to cover local news. In the Spring of 2013 I spent four months studying in London and fell in love with everything about the city.

The World is my first foray into the realm of international news and I could not be more excited.

In my free time, I can be found consuming useless pop culture trivia and playing music.
