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.

A rare colossal squid was dissected in New Zealand — and you can watch it on YouTube

Last summer in the southern hemisphere, a fishing vessel in the Antarctic Ocean pulled up a rare creature — a 770-pound colossal squid. Only one other such animal had been pulled up intact before, surprisingly, by the same vessel. It is thought that the giant marine beast might be the origin of legends of undersea monsters. Scientists in New Zealand froze it to preserve it and just defrosted and dissected it.
