Backpacker Magazine – In my reporting on the Financial Crises I noticed an interesting and inspiring trend, people were using their lack of work as an oppurtunity to go hiking on a few of America’s longest trails, the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail.

The Boston Globe, Travel Section, Doers and Dreamers Finish Appalachian Trail – In the aftermath of the financial crises, I packed up my car and headed north to Millinocket Maine where the Appalachian Trail thru-hikers, those impressive embodied souls that walk from Georgia to Maine, finally complete their four to six month trek. The article highlights notes the increase in hikers due to the fact that people were laid off and decided to spend their unemployment hiking.

Zeek Magazine, documenting the progressive Jewish community – I went on a 2 week Birthright adventure, an organization that sponsors free trips to Israel for Jews who have never been there before. Only, when I realized the trips function to a large extent, as a well-oiled propaganda machine to rally Jewish Americans behind the occupation of the Palestinian people, I extended my stay and traveled to the West Bank to document the discrepancy between Birthright’s presentation of the political situation in Israel and the reality I witnessed. The piece is called Birthright’s Israel: The Political Bias of the Jewish Community’s Favorite Program

Audubon Magazine reporting intern – I wrote at least a dozen articles for Audubon Magazine, an environmental magazine that focuses on birds. During my stint I wrote about topics such as eccentric New York City birders, to interviews with scientists who specialize in Plant Consciousness , to perhaps my favorite, a famous pigeon.
