Here’s a handy list of some of my clippings. I’ve also scribbled a couple of things (literally, two things) on my blog. Oh, and here’s a video of me speaking to NowThis News about the misogyny behind the UC Santa Barbara shooting and to HuffPost Live about Maya Angelou’s history as a sex worker.

Newspaper feature writing: My stories for Columbia News Service, which is distributed around the U.S. and Canada by the New York Times News Service, were published in several newspapers including the Berkshire Eagle (MA), the News & Observer (NC), the Star-Telegram (TX), the Star Advertiser (HI) and the Montreal Gazette, among others. Features include: Diamonds are a man’s best friend: the rise of the male engagement ring; Will popcorn and raisinets save the movie business?: theaters’ growing reliance on concessions sales over ticket revenue; Jedis: not so far, far away after all: the real-life religion of Jediism; and Interlopers invade “insular” dating websites: outsiders looking for love on demographic-specific matchmaking sites.
Cultural affairs reporting: I wrote about whether the discovery of Richard III’s bones would affect productions of the Shakespeare play, the seven movies made about Abraham Lincoln in the space of just two years, the trials faced by religious actors on stage, as well as a review of the French art house film “Something In The Air.”
Religion reporting: I covered liberal Christian women’s orders for Religio. Stories reported from Pope Francis’ inauguration in Rome include the retail ritual of merchandise shopping and efforts to lobby the Vatican for women’s rights within the Church. A story from Rome, about most of the costumed centurions outside the Colosseum being Jewish, was published by Tablet Magazine.
Beat reporting: I covered the Greek community in Astoria, Queens, for Global City NYC. Enterprise stories include the rise in Greek immigration to New York due to the economic crisis (published in the Queens Chronicle) as well as coverage of Election Day 2012 and Superstorm Sandy.
