About Briana

Briana Bonfiglio is a reporter, a writer, and a storyteller. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism from SUNY New Paltz in 2018 and is currently the digital editor of Long Island Press, a monthly print publication and daily online news site owned by Schneps Media. Her work has also appeared in The New Paltz Oracle, Chronogram, Long Island Herald, Long Beach Magazine, 21Oak.com, and HuntingtonNow.com.

Briana knew from a young age growing up in the suburbs of Long Island that she wanted to write. But she didn't want to create fantasies; she wanted to learn and convey stories about real lives, issues, and events happening around her.

When she's not following Long Island politics or writing about the latest news, you can find her doing at-home yoga, laughing at cat memes on Twitter, rollerskating, reading, journaling, or bowling (not well, she might add.)
