Published

Hello! You’re probably here to see what I’ve published in my career. Here is most of what I written and feel comfortable with (so far).

I’ve added each story below under their respective topic. Although, near the end is miscellaneous, which I am unable to put under anything like policing. I did write for The Knight News at CUNY Queens College and only highlighted stories that I think are important. All of them can be found here.

The oldest story appears first and then it goes down from there. Enjoy.

Note: News-O-Matic stories available upon request. Article link will be available once I am notified.
