Originally from the greater Boston area, I graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in archaeology before diving into journalism at various media outlets in Vietnam. After completing a master's in journalism at NUI Galway in Ireland, I worked for the Connacht Tribune and Galway Daily. In 2019 I moved to the South Coast as a reporter — and later editor — of the Dartmouth Week. Now I am a news reporter for 1420 WBSM.
