Hi there! I’m Gina, a Brooklyn-based writer, researcher, and photographer.
I was trained as a print journalist but my experiences are mostly in online journalism, content management systems, and managing social media for a variety of organizations, including the award-winning K-12 newspaper, Education Week. My skill set has expanded to include marketing and communications design work, and video production and editing with Adobe Creative Suite for a nonprofit organization in East Harlem.
I have a B.A. in journalism (’12) from the University of Maryland, College Park. I also have an M.A. in sociology (’16) from the New School for Social Research, where I studied and applied foundational sociological theories to educational issues that affected low-income and poor families. My primary interest is in the relationship between communities and educational institutions in rural and urban areas affected by poverty. I’m interested in race, class, crime and social control, and the organization of the teaching profession. I hope to eventually return to grad school for a Ph.D.
This website is a platform for me to explore issues of interest to me, as well as to share with readers more personal experiences. You can also check out my writings here, and check out my photographs on Flickr. I’m also on Instagram and Twitter.
I’m available for freelance work. Want to talk? Comment on something? Collaborate? Drop me a line here. 💌
