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 reshaping existing narratives around what it means to live sustainably.
currently, I am an assistant editor at Scholastic where I work on classroom magazines for high schoolers. 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 journalism from New York University. over the past seven years, I've created content via print, digital, and multimedia platforms for brands like: Sesame Street, Time Out & Time Out Kids, Parents, Martha Stewart Living, Saveur, Departures, THINX and more.
here are some other memorable life experiences you may not find on my resume:
