About Me

Screen Shot 2019-09-02 at 6.13.28 PM

Growing up in the suburbs of Boston during the ’90s and early 2000s, I had no choice but to be a sports fan.

Due in large part to my beloved great-grandmother, the Boston Red Sox were the first great love of my life. The Patriots, Celtics and Bruins followed shortly thereafter. I knew from an extremely young age that sports were my passion, and I spent years trying to figure out how I could turn that passion into a career.

Enter: photography.

In 2010 I began my education at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York, majoring in photojournalism. I spent my summers as a photography intern for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, and later on, for the Rochester Red Wings of Minor League Baseball. I graduated in May of 2014 with the goal of becoming a sports photo editor.

In August of that year, I made the move to New York City to begin my career as a photo editor for AOL.com. I served in that role across multiple channels for three years while also venturing into the worlds of writing, copy editing and interviewing. In September of 2017, I transitioned to become a full-time sports editor, bringing my keen eye for visuals along with me.

Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to lead coverage on several major events, drive traffic to stories that truly matter, and interview some of the greatest athletes and sports personalities of our time. I’m eager to continue sharpening my skills, knowing that there’s never a dull day in the world of sports.
