There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

About Me

Adept and enthusiastic award-winning journalist who is passionate about the arts, news, travel, culture, fashion, writing and entertainment, I am currently a reporter, self-editor, photographer, podcast co-host and page designer at Spotlight Newspapers and TheSpot518 in Albany, New York.

I have also written regularly for numerous publications like Times Union, Faded Fashion Magazine, Capital District Senior Spotlight, Albany Student Press and more.

In addition, I am a certified UX writer who crafts copy to advocate for users, elevate products and improve user experience. I have a separate portfolio website coming soon for my UX writing endeavors.

Having lived in the Philippines, Singapore, Germany and the United States, I have also become more open-minded when encountering new environments and observing how different cultures interact. Immersing myself in writing, digital/online media, design, photojournalism and UX writing, I am always eager to learn new skills and gain new exposure which have helped me move up in the writing/design world.

I graduated from the State University of New York at Albany in May 2018 with a bachelor's degree in journalism and a minor in globalization studies. My past experiences include an internship with Spotlight Newspapers (prior to getting employed there), writing for a blog at the Times Union, and being the senior Arts and Entertainment Editor at the Albany Student Press.
