Journalist, Columnist, and Writer
My name is Giuseppe “Joey” Pagano, and I am a Central New York-based journalist, columnist, and writer. I recently obtained my masters degree in Cultural Foundations of Education and certificate of advanced study in Disability Studies from Syracuse University’s School of Education. I graduated from Syracuse’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in May 2021, one year early, and am pursuing a career in journalism and politics. Currently a research assistant at SU’s Burton Blatt Institute and a legislative correspondent in the office of New York State Senator John W. Mannion, I am seeking freelance opportunities. Since graduating, I have been a guest columnist for Syracuse.com/The Post Standard, writing columns on a variety of topics. I have also written for Yahoo Life and contributed to work at Syracuse’s Center on Disability and Inclusion.
