I now work as the director of The Stand, Syracuse’s South Side Community Newspaper Project, which is produced in partnership with S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications students, Syracuse residents and a community board of directors.
For this in-depth project, Syracuse Jobs Matter, I assisted students in finding stories reflective of the challenges Syracuse job hunters face daily.
Before joining Syracuse University, I worked at The Citizen, a daily newspaper based in Auburn, New York, as a copy editor and later as the paper’s features editor. I started at the paper shortly after graduating from college, and it was my first full-time position.
Throughout college, I worked part time at the Carrier Dome stocking beer and providing catering for VIP suites, plus working other catering jobs in nearly every kitchen on campus. And I kept this position throughout my time at the paper, working seven days a week during the football season. My catering tenure ended in 2008, serving as liquor cage supervisor. I’d send out orders of beer, wine and spirits to box owners.
Greatest catering accomplishment: teaching young college kids not to store red wine in the fridge.
