hello! my name is alex, I write, edit, and educate. I get excited about finding new ways to engage with the next generation, and I am fascinated by the intersections of education and media. I am also passionate about sharing simple ways to live more sustainably.
currently, I am the assistant editor on Scholastic's Action magazine. when I'm not there, I am a freelance writer covering eco-friendly living and family lifestyle.
I earned my B.A in communications from the University of Michigan - Dearborn and my M.A in magazine writing from New York University. over the past five years, I've explored content creation via print, digital, and multimedia platforms with brands like: Sesame Street, Martha Stewart Living, Saveur, Departures, and Time Out New York.
when I'm not writing, you can find me cooking (and composting), geeking out in a craft store, waking up for @creativemornings, or drinking coffee after 6 p.m.
