OK, OK, I’m back - With a GIANT FACE

I haven’t updated this page in two years. Apologies. It’s been really busy. Since my last post, I had to abandon life as a freelancer and focus on DNAinfo New York full time. I’ve also begun teaching basic reporting at Columbia University’s J-School.

I’ll fill in more gaps in subsequent posts and update this site more regularly. In the meantime, here’s a bit of press I did with Capital New York.

Good Press for DNAinfo.com

As you know, I’m the Managing Editor for DNAinfo.com, New York City’s award-winning neighborhood news source.  We’ve gotten some good press recently.  Here’s a sampling.

Been a while…

Yeah, it’s been a while.  Been working up a storm at DNAinfo.com.  In the past week, I’ve been quoted in several media outlets about our experience covering Occupy Wall Street. I was in The Washington Post and The New York Observer. What I told the Observer was then reprinted by The New York Times.
