Introduction

As a lifelong resident of New Jersey much of my reporting takes place throughout the state. In the same vein, my feature length non-fiction and creative writing has been inspired by many sides of the Garden State and New York City. The majority of my reporting has been done in Essex and Union Counties including West Orange, Livingston, Westfield and Cranford. I’ve written for TAPinto West Orange, TAPinto Livingston and the Westfield Leader / Scotch Plains-Fanwood Times. My creative writing has been published with the literary blog Storgy.com and the Goodmenproject.com
