Writing

I cover college hockey as well as the intersection between sports and social justice.

I have covered sports since 2009, writing about lacrosse, hockey, soccer, and more. Currently, I cover Big Ten hockey for College Hockey News and the CWHL for The Victory Press. I also created Eye on the Tigers in 2013 and turned it into the premier source for Princeton hockey news. Through multimedia content and social media, I successfully implemented a subscription service.

I have freelanced since 2013 and have had bylines in College Hockey News, the West Windsor-Plainsboro News, ESPNW and more. Previously I interned for WEEI, NESN and The Daily Telegraph (Syndey's largest newspaper).

Here are some of my favorite pieces:

Folkes Hero | Growth Spurt | Fighting Back | Outdoor Women's Classic | Kathryn Yates' Cool Sports Job

Podcasts

I host and produce two podcasts – Stick To Sports and The Podcast That Ruined College Hockey.

Stick To Sports features a mix of “politics” and sports and places and emphasis on athlete activism. I discuss a variety of topics and occasionally interview guests. I also created a companion newsletter that breaks down the weekly happenings in politics, sports and politics and athlete activism.

The Podcast That Ruined College Hockey is my show about Big Ten hockey. In addition to weekly breakdowns of the league, teams and standings I talk with  college hockey experts and reporters for their perspective on the conference and its teams.

Social Media

Since 2012, I have used social media as a tool to build a loyal community and brand awareness. I have worked with social media for the Northeast Conference, Eye on the Tigers, Based in Wire and WTBU Sports.

For the Northeast Conference, I used social media to connect with fans during championships. Social media was key in building a loyal following that later allowed me to implement a successful subscription service. With WTBU Sports I revamped our social media strategy, which led to an increase in followers and engagement.
