(I recently became the Editor of Heady NJ, an independent news site focusing on cannabis reform in New Jersey and the business and culture springing forth from it. Check it out!)
I am a New Jersey-based Writer launching Xcelsior Communications LLC to market my expertise in communications in the cannabis industry.
I have covered domestic politics and policies at all levels of government. In addition, I cover local business developments as well. I was a reporter delivering news on local and state government, health and economic policies, and the federal response to housing, financial, and student debt issues, before focusing on the cannabis industry.
I serve in a volunteer capacity as Vice President of Communications for the Latino Action Network where I have secured press for the organization in Observer.com, InsiderNJ.com, and the TV news program Jersey Matters.
I have an extensive background on political campaigns, having previously served as a Campaign Manager on an Assembly race in Ohio and advocated for economic issues, including healthcare reform.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Syracuse University and a Master’s degree in Legislative Affairs from George Washington University.
