I'm an independent journalist in New York's Hudson Valley. I worked for years at traditional publications in the region and experienced first-hand how the constriction of the newspaper market led to the decline of good reporting. Through no fault of their own, many local papers can only produce cursory, sloppy stories as shrinking staffs of reporters kill themselves to fill pages with content as quickly as they can.

I quit my last paper to create the opposite: a news and culture site putting depth above speed. The Other Hudson Valley focuses on less than 10 stories a month, diving deep into every issue and creating meticulously researched, long-form news articles and literary, character-driven culture pieces.

TO ACTIVATE THE SITE'S FULL CONTENT once you have signed up, simply:
-Go to
-Click the box hiding the additional content, the one that begins "Aw Crud!"
-A window will appear. Click "Allow."
-You only need to do this once. The additional content will now appear each time you visit The Other Hudson Valley.
