Resume

Currently I am a producer and writer at CBS News Radio network. I drive network news coverage, edit and produce live, national broadcasts, conduct incisive interviews with newsmakers, including members of Congress and cabinet secretaries, and write compelling, succinct news stories. I also edit and produce podcasts, including “The Widow” podcast for 48 Hours. 

Previously, as a content producer for "Today in New York" on WNBC-TV, I wrote concise, engaging scripts, and edited accompanying video, to produce stories that anchors read on air. I also wrote headlines for the news crawl and wrote condensed newscasts seen in NYC taxis. I also conceived, researched, and wrote the trivia segment on Saturday morning from 2015 until leaving in 2019.

I've written for CBS This Morning Saturday, the and the CBS Weekend Evening News.

I wrote about an episode from my life in an essay published in the New York Times Magazine.

I enjoy volunteering with City Harvest, I am the chairman of the social media committee at my church, Trinity Lutheran Church, in Queens, and I judge the News and Documentary Emmy Awards
