Real Estate and Retail Reporter

Dzień Dobry! I’m a first-generation native to Clearwater born to immigrants from Poland and Polish is my first language. Yes, I’m that girl eating pierogi on the beach. You caught me. I went to college in the big NYC and learned what the word “winter” actually meant. Now, I’m back in the bay area helping you find the stories that matter through the odd world of the internet. Also, I write the cheesiest puns that would beat any “dad joke” you’ve ever heard. My favorite stories are about the intersections of art history, religion, philosophy, geography or business. Most of all, I love studying the way our minds experience stories.
