I write because of my fascination with figuring out how the world works, and enthusiasm for helping people tell their stories.
Hi reader! I'm Madison. Thanks for visiting my portfolio; I'm glad you're here.
I can still pinpoint the exact moment I decided I wanted to become a writer. It was in the third grade, when I penned a story for my writing class. Even though it was only required to be one page, mine was seven.
Since then, I've studied journalism in college, filled countless notebooks, and gotten some pretty exciting bylines. And I still have a lot of writing to do. Here's some of it.
The Practical Stuff
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY.
I attended from Aug. 2016 to May 2020. At Marist, I majored in Communication with a dual concentration in Journalism & Public Relations.
I also minored in Photography and Graphic Design. My cumulative GPA was 3.8, and I finished school Magna Cum Laude.
I'm currently a Social Media & Digital Content Production Specialist at Taunton Press.
In addition, I'm an Adviser for The Wall Street Journal's magazine for people ages 18-34, Noted. I'm also a Contributing Writer for Atwood Magazine, where I get to write about the indie music I'm constantly listening to.
The Fun Stuff
You can usually find me...
In a bookstore with an iced chai in hand, or walking my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy, Phoebe.

In three words, I am...
Passionate, creative, optimistic.
