Hello there!

Glad you came by! Collected here are the pieces I wrote for Boston.com as part of the Metro News course taught by professor Jerry Lanson at Emerson College. Each piece covers local beats throughout Boston, specifically Jamaica Plain.

*Please know some stories contain some formatting errors after being uploaded that I’ve tried (unsuccessfully) to contact the Globe about fixing¬†for a while now. I apologize for this, and hopefully will have them resolved in the future.
