Self portrait by Mary Bakija

I am a freelance writer and editor based in Brooklyn, New York. I’m interested in preserving the things people like me have written, and ensuring information is accessible.

Currently, I’m working on cool library and archives projects. I used to be the managing editor of Corner News Media, which consisted of a bunch of local news websites that have since merged into BklynerThe New York Times quoted me once and boy are my parents proud of that one.

I have a BFA from Emerson College, and I’m currently pursuing a master’s in library and information science at Pratt. I’m also crafty and I cook a lot. I really like pizza.
