Hey, I’m Allyson.

Welcome to my corner of the web. I’m a multimedia journalist from the Inland Empire/Los Angeles in Southern California. Currently, I am based in New York City, with skills and experience in print and digital media.

As a reporter, I have covered things from general assignment breaking news, religion, politics, transportation, health, crime, immigration, arts and culture, food and drink, lifestyle, entertainment, and Asian American issues/events. While my specialty is on the writing and reporting side of things, I also shoot photography and video. I have blog-writing, copy-writing and editing experience, as well as broad experience in public relations, marketing, social media and website management.

My bylines have appeared in local and national publications, including NBC NewsThe Daily Pilot and TimesOC (local publications of the LA Times Community News), The Tablet, America Magazine, Voices of NYAsian JournalLA Weekly, The Press-Enterprise, Mott Haven Herald, New America Media, NYCity News Service, KCET Food & Living, the Orange County Catholic, Angelus News and Inquirer.net.

I graduated in 2018 with an M.A. in Journalism from the Newmark School of Journalism at the City University of New York (CUNY), where I honed multimedia skills from data journalism to making audio newscasts. I also hvae a B.A. in English from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles (class of 2014).

I hope to utilize my multimedia skills and storytelling experience as a reporter and creative writer in an upbeat, collaborative team environment.
