About me: I’m excited to return to Patch as a traveling writer, a job that will allow me to find out what’s happening in communities across the country. I worked as Patch Field’s editor from April 2020 to June 2021, covering Agoura Hills, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Malibu, and Northridge-Chatsworth. Previously, I was associate editor of the Jewish Journal, a bi-weekly newspaper covering the Jewish community north of Boston. I grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts, a small seaside town north of Boston, and graduated from Bard College in New York, then got my Masters in Teaching at New York University .
