Hello! I'm Erica, a multimedia journalist and sports writer from New York. This site is where you'll find my portfolio of published work.
As someone who inherited my love of sports from my Mom, I am especially interested in stories that deviate from traditional hero narratives and the image of a father and son playing catch. I'm especially passionate about baseball, which I grew up around, and competitive logging, a sport I picked up and fell in love with as a college student in Maine.
I have experience covering a range of subject matter and particularly enjoy writing about gender and representation within the world of sports. My goal is to bring the big business of sports down to earth by humanizing players and making myself a useful conduit between the athletes on the field and those of you who like to read and learn about them.
