Collected below is a select group of what I consider to be some of my best work. I've also tried to assemble work that represents the wide variety of articles I've written. If you are interested in any other articles I've written, please go here.
1. "D.A. Drops Charges In Wellesley Prostitution Sting" and "Was Undercover Officer's Conduct In Wellesley Sting Appropriate?" - 18 Aug. 2011, The Wellesley Townsman.
- These two articles drew a tremendous amount of reader attention, and were written after extensive interviews with lawyers, police officers, and business owners. I also used court records dug up through research, and personally took photographs for these stories. These stories were also picked up by WCVB, a Boston TV station, where it generated even more reader reaction.
