During my high school years and undergraduate years in college, I had always aspired to be a writer for the Philadelphia Daily News or The Philadelphia Inquirer. In fact, I was the co-editor-in-chief of my high school newspaper (The Centralizer) during my senior year, and I went on to major in print journalism at Temple University. Featured below are links to much of my work during this time period.
Centralizer 1999-2000: I created this website (after graduating from high school) in order to display our staff's hard work online, as well as to showcase some of my own writing from other local newspapers. Many of the links featured below are actually part of this website. Click here to enter.

Avenue of the Arts North: Getting a Fair Share of the Pie? - For my investigative reporting class at Temple University, I was part of a group of four students who examined why North Broad Street (Avenue of the Arts North) in Philadelphia, PA was not receiving the same amount of attention as South Broad Street (Avenue of the Arts South). Our group did an extensive print article, a five-minute television broadcast piece, and an online article about the subject. Here is a website I have created featuring our two written pieces, as well as dozens of photographs of landmarks along Broad Street. (Under construction)
