I grew up in Kearny, NJ, 10 miles west of Manhattan. My involvement in the media world began in high school, when I challenged my U.S. History teacher for preaching his religious beliefs during class time. The following year, I worked to correct an inaccurate and biased AP American Government textbook. As an advocate for accuracy, I appeared on and in numerous media outlets such as The New York Times, Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, and Brian Lehrer on NPR, delivered addresses around the country, published an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, and continually worked toward providing quality education to students in my school and around the country.
Since 2009, I have hosted a talk show called “Equal Time for Freethought” on WBAI 99.5FM in NYC, interviewing authors, scientists, and public figures including Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Greene, and Sam Harris. I graduated with a BA in Culture and Media Studies from the New School and then received an MA in Science Journalism from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
