Four years (and counting) as a reporter.

I cover political news as a freelancer for the Connecticut Mirror and, previously, news, sports and culture as a senior staff writer at The Daily Campus.

Five years as a political operative.

I worked for numerous local, state and federal campaigns, a political action committee and a state political party during my middle and high school days.

One year as a speech and debate coach.

I taught dozens of public school students in rural Georgia how to speak clearly and perform confidently while participating in competitions across the country.
