New York-Based Writer and Media Producer
Hi, I'm Dani!
I'm a writer and media producer in NYC, and the Senior Internal Communications Specialist at The Environmental Defense Fund.
I'm a SUNY New Paltz alumna a dual degree in Digital Media Production and English: Creative Writing. I have an abundance of experience as a writer, editor, and content strategist working to build brands in the digital space.
In 2021, I took a brief detour as an Office Production Assistant on Universal's "She Said" (2022) and as a Cast Assistant on Netflix's "Spaceman" (2023).
In my free time like to foster puppies, learn about edible plants, and play acoustic guitar.
I am still open to select freelance writing and design opportunities. To learn more about me, feel free to snoop around my website. Stay awhile, and read about my specialties below. ↓
As a Digital Media Production graduate from the State University of New York at New Paltz, an office production assistant at NBC, 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."
I hold a degree in English: Creative Writing. In the last few 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.
