Fall 2009 – Spring 2012
During my time at The FreeP, I was fortunate enough to interview everyone from Howard Zinn to Adrian Grenier. I covered major events in and around the city as well as off-campus, including: Occupy Boston, Boston City Council, Quidditch and Osama bin Laden’s death. When I finished my time as editor-in-chief in December of 2011, I decided to pen a weekly column while abroad in London in Spring 2012 called “Winning London.”

Editor-in-Chief (Fall 2011):
- During my time as editor-in-chief, The Daily Free Press was awarded third place in Mark of Excellence by Society of Professional Journalists.
- I also helped double the staff by introducing staff applications, due at the beginning of each semester.
- Under my leadership, we published several in-depth articles about the Occupy Boston movement. We also conducted two in-depth semester-long investigations. One looked at a professor who was arrested for allegedly helping her son run a meth lab and another exposed Isabel Wilkerson, a B.U. journalism professor who was getting paid more than other faculty members but not showing up to most of her classes.
- I was featured in a June 2012 edition of Editor & Publisher magazine in its critical thinking section about college censorship.
- Here is my FINAL WORD as editor-in-chief, published in my last issue in December 2011.
