Pronounced 𝘋𝘢𝘢𝘳-𝘵𝘰𝘰-𝘯𝘰𝘰𝘳-𝘳𝘰𝘩, but most people call me Dart.

I'm a dedicated media professional with nearly a decade of newsroom knowledge, from small-town papers to national news outlets. I have extensive experience collaborating with editors and reporters across teams on breaking news, daily coverage and enterprise, pitching sharp stories, adhering to documented style standards for clean and precise copy, and writing punchy, SEO-friendly headlines.

In addition, a proven ability to meet deadlines, manage projects and adapt to content management systems and company workflow.

Fun facts: Ran a long-distance race in every NYC borough, including the 2018 New York City Marathon, I'm a Mariah Carey evangelist, and attempted the 52 books in 52 weeks challenge (I got to No. 19).
