I am a veteran journalist and academic who teaches and chairs the Journalism and Professional writing department at The College of New Jersey. I teach Magazine Writing, Writing for Interactive Multimedia, Video Production and Editing, Introduction to Journalism, Senior Capstone and The True Cost of Fashion, a course on the Ethics and Sustainability of the Global Fashion Industry.
Outside of the classroom, I have written about design, innovation, and sustainability as a freelance contributor to national, regional and trade publications. I have researched and written about how fashion brands can have more sustainable supply chains, and explored the challenges of re-shoring garment manufacturing to the U.S. Here is a sampling of my work.
