Reporting in the Northeast

A picture I took of a Gloucester beach during one of my reporting trips.

During the summer of 2011, after graduation, I had a chance to report in small Massachusetts communities.

It was the perfect last hurrah to three incredible years living in The Bay State.

Every day I’d jump in my car and traverse the highways and meet new people and tell their stories. It made me fall in love with Massachusetts. It’s so complete, with its small-town charm and global city influence.

Anyway, here are a few memorable pieces I wrote.

I spent an afternoon hanging out with kids and talking to camp counselors  at Camp Gan Israel in Swampscott. It was a great cultural experience. Swampscott is also one of my favorite towns in Massachusetts. I love how small it is and the beautiful beaches, especially King’s Beach. I spent many summer days enjoying the sun while reading a good book there.

While I was with Patch, they had something called Passport Sundays. Basically, a contributor would write about a nearby town that people could visit and what to do during the day. It took me to Gloucester and Lowell. It was just me and my crappy digital camera, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. I recently found out that Jack Kerouac’s grave is located in Lowell. I really wish I knew that then.

A picture I took during a summer walk by the Charles River Esplanade in 2011.

Check out some other stories I worked on during my time with Patch:
