New York-Based Writer and Media Producer
Hello, I'm Dani!
And this is my website.
I am a Magna Cum Laude grad from SUNY New Paltz, where I earned a dual degree in Digital Media Production and English: Creative Writing. I have an abundance of experience as a writer and editor working to build brands in the digital space. In my free time, I like to foster puppies and play acoustic guitar.
I am still open to work in the NYC area and Hudson Valley in the entertainment, journalism, and publishing industries! To learn more about me, feel free to snoop around my website. Stay awhile, and read about my specialties below. ↓
I am currently working for Netflix Film talent as a Cast Assistant. As a Digital Media Production graduate from the State University of New York at New Paltz and a photo intern at Reader's Digest, I was able to fine-tune my skills as a director, producer, and lead editor. Most recently, I conceptualized and directed the documentary "Lovejoy to the Rescue."
In addition to completing my dual degree in English: Creative Writing at New Paltz, in the last two years I have been an Editorial Intern, contributor and SEO writer for Reader's Digest, an Arts and Entertainment writer and copyeditor at the New Paltz Oracle, and a staff editor and social media strategist for The Teller Magazine. I love stories that require a lot of research and lead me down JSTOR rabbit-holes. I enjoy writing profiles, reviewing literature and entertainment, and reporting on all things interesting. In my free time, I write fiction.
As an FM certified DJ and audio enthusiast, I spent most of my college years inside of a radio station. In addition to having a weekly music show at WFNP the Edge, I learned a lot about on-air etiquette and regional politics every weeknight as the Local News Director, and honed my PR skills as the Public Affairs and Promotions Director. At Townsquare Media in Poughkeepsie, I worked as a Promotions Intern. In this role I worked live events, produced drops and sweeps, and earned my chops in Adobe Audition.
