I began college at the University of Connecticut in 2004 with a love of history and the written word.  After traveling around Central America and Europe, I realized I wanted to be a part of recording history as it happened, not just analyzing others' renditions of the past. Journalism became a natural fit, and as print publications continued to shrink and disappear altogether, it became clear that the future of reporting, especially in the written form, would be online.
At UConn I wrote for and helped edit UdotConn, the university's first news source published solely online, and after graduation I took a job covering the town of East Hampton for Hamptons.com, a pioneer in local online news coverage servicing the East End of Long Island.  By the end of my tenure with Hamptons.com, I was working as the news editor for the entire South Fork, from Riverhead to Montauk. A New Englander born-and-bred, I was excited about the opportunity to return to Connecticut with Patch. Coming to Brookfield, a quintessential New England town, certainly feels like coming home.
