Patch.com

 

I had the opportunity to work as a freelance journalist for Patch.com.
Patch is a website that does hyper-local news and provides information about businesses in individual towns.

Most of my news coverage was either about government activities, or the arts.

Patches I have written for include Riverdell (Oradell and
River Edge, NJ), Mahwah, Hasbrouck Heights, Wyckoff, Kinnelon (Butler, Kinnelon and Bloomingdale, NJ), and New Milford.

Two New Crossroads Ordinances Proposed To Address Resident Concerns
