My work has appeared in The Washington Post, The Gazette, The Atlantic, Sno-Cone and several defunct zines. I have a journalism degree from the University of Missouri, with a political science minor and received my Master’s in communications from American University.
I speak functional Spanish and less-than-functional Italian. I have covered such events as DC high school sports, the 2008 election of Barack Obama, DC Sniper trials, the government shutdown of 2013, the 2016 election, Snowpocalypse and many others.
I used to run a blog with my late friend about Chicago baseball that has been dormant for a while. I also wrote a project that reviewed all 500 albums on Rolling Stone‘s list of the best of all time. I have a dormant album review blog called Albums that I Own. It's not updated often.
I live, play softball and work in Washington, D.C.
Pronounce My Name!
My surname is somewhat hard to pronounce, so I had Google Translate say it in Italian in the video below. Don't feel pressured to say it that way, but I get a lot of questions.
