my writing

I've loved to write since as long as I can remember and am thrilled to have had my work published online and in print. Below you'll find articles I've written for the Awesome Mitten and New Canaan Darien Magazine. Find out more about my experiences writing for these publications on my resume page or read on below to view my work!

 
 

Beat the Chill

I wrote this article during my internship for New Canaan Darien Magazine to appear on their website. The concept of the article was to give ideas to families in Fairfield County, Connecticut to stay active during the long New England winter. This was my first experience writing professional content for the web and I enjoyed all parts of the process: researching, writing, and editing.

 

Cuisine for the Clan

This was the second article I wrote for New Canaan Darien Magazine's website. The article serves as a guide to local parents looking for family-friendly restaurants in Fairfield County. The process was very similar - research, write, edit - but as a foodie who reads menus online for fun, this article was incredibly enjoyable for me.

 

Stellar Views Near Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore

I wrote this "listicle" for the Awesome Mitten, an online publication promoting tourism in Michigan. Serving as a sort of guide to the Great Lakes state, it serves to cultivate a fresh perspective on Michigan by engaging local communities, businesses, and people. I combined my knowledge of the area where I spend my summers with research to compile a list of the best Lake Michigan views in western Leelanau County, Michigan. I was also able to feature some of my original photography in this article.

 
Traverse City Food Trucks

Traverse City Food Trucks

Writing about food in Northern Michigan is what dreams are made of. The best part of this article was, of course, the sampling, but the writing process was only made more enjoyable by allowing me to indulge in all my foodie fantasies. My original photography is also featured.

 

Mama Bear and Her Cubs: The Story of Sleeping Bear

The third and final article I wrote for the Awesome Mitten allowed me to combine my love for history, story-telling, and photography. Read the article to discover the origin of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, as well as how you can visit the historic landmark, voted the most beautiful place in America. My original photography is also featured.
