An American Ukrainian from Chicago, I attended Miami University in Oxford, OH where I received a bachelor’s in Journalism and English Literature. I wrote for The Miami Student, Up fashion magazine, and the Miami Quarterly on campus.
I interned with The Oxford Press in Oxford, Ohio during my sophomore year for a semester and then in Washington, D.C. with The Fund for American Studies, specifically the Institute on Political Journalism program during the summer of 2010. The following summer I interned with Cardenas Marketing Network as the PR intern in downtown Chicago.
I currently serve as the new Deputy News Editor with the Air Force Times.
In July 2013, I was selected to be a Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellow hosted by the National Press Foundation.
I am bilingually proficient in Ukrainian, and grew up learning Ukrainian arts, culture, history and literature.
My interests include world cultures, international governments, history, intelligence agencies, cybersecurity, politics, the military, and especially written literature on each or all of the above.
