Here is a sampling of my latest stories. (Note — stories are behind a paywall.)
A few topics among the many that I have either spotted or written up as a producer for Bostonglobe.com:
Some stories I wrote as a reporter for The Boston Globe:
- A realistic-looking statue of a man sleepwalking in his underwear near the center of Wellesley College created a stir and a petition among the women on campus in February 2014.
- As this story broke and went viral nationwide, many newspapers and online publications — including the Associated Press — used content and information from my article.
- One of many stories I covered on the shootout between police and the alleged Boston Marathon bombers in Watertown, Mass., a community that I cover on a beat. I also reported from the scene of the gunfight in the early hours of April 19, tweeting information and filing color for the Globe.
- Reported from about a half-mile away where homemade bombs exploded at the 2013 Boston Marathon finish line.
- Page One story covering the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. I was among some of the first reporters to arrive on scene after the shooting in Newtown, Conn., where much of my family lives.
- Broke initial story for The Boston Globe on the criminal investigation into Aaron Hernandez, a former tight end for the New England Patriots.
- Reported and recorded video of neighbor who said he witnessed the alleged murder of Jennifer Martel, who was reportedly dating the son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy.
- An enterprising feature profiling Watertown, Mass. that ran as a prominent centerpiece story on the front page of Globe West following the Marathon bombing events.
- Filed Freedom of Information Act requests and culled city payroll documents to report on how the Waltham police chief collected $182,358 in salary and other benefits while on administrative leave for allegedly assaulting his wife, including a $16,814 longevity bonus he received after his arrest.
- Broke news that four Wellesley firefighters, who appeared in a viral video where they rescued a golden retriever from an icy Charles River, had to give Ellen DeGeneres back Caribbean cruise tickets due to state ethics laws. I also broke the initial story on the dog’s rescue for the Globe.
- An enterprising feature on how Framingham State University, the state’s fastest-growing public university, and Massachusetts Bay Community College have affected local businesses and residents in Framingham, one of the most populous towns in Massachusetts.
