Hi! Welcome to my website!

I am a freelance writer with a passion for telling stories, be it journalism, biographies for websites, or even through grant writing for nonprofits. I like to capture the essence of humanity, while helping others see their world differently, and make sound decisions as a result. At best, I hope to teach understanding and spread hope through my storytelling.

I graduated with my Bachelors from the College of Staten Island in 2004, and earned my M.A. from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in 2008.  I started my journalism career interning at NY1 News in the fall of 2003, for its education reporter. After graduation in 2004, I spent the next three years working as a production assistant at FOX News. While studying for my Masters’, I interned at MSNBC and NYPost.com.

Since earning my M.A., I have mainly been freelancing, both in print and video. From August 2015 to October 2016, I was a field reporter for the New York Post. Currently, I am a freelance journalist and grant writer. My main focus as a journalist is education, which is something I am passionate about. My work has appeared on such sites as Brooklyn Daily, Bensonhurst Bean, Fort Greene Focus, Irish Central and New York Parenting’s Special Child.

In addition, I have my own media business, Pearl Eyes Media I’ve even self-published a novel, though that’s under a different name. I am currently working on another novel.
