I write for Risk & Compliance Journal, a page hosted on WSJ.com.
I'm 27 and I live in Astoria, Queens. I listen to a ton of music and read a lot about politics, public policy, the news media and the future of journalism. I also am a big fan of the Knicks, Jets and Mets. Expect a heavy dose of things to read.
