I had better tell you

who I am, and why.

In short:

Freelance writer



In short-ish:

Formerly at Here Mag and Elite Daily.

Currently at the Boston Globe. Interested

in climate, food, sexuality, tomato bases, and justice.

San Diego–raised. Boston-schooled.

At length:

I’m a graduate student at Boston University’s College of Communication,

where I’m earning a master’s in journalism. I like narrative reporting and

magazine writing best. I’m also a digital producer for the Boston Globe,

I write for Cosmopolitan, and I freelance elsewhere.

Before grad school, I helped build out several start-up publications

from their earliest stages, including Away’s Here Magazine. When I graduated

from the honors program at Emerson College in 2017, I moved to

NYC as Away’s first editorial intern. I assisted the launch

of Here, an award-winning multi-platform magazine known for travel guides

and narrative reports on creative communities around the world. As an

intern, associate, and finally the magazine’s print editor, I kick-started our 

newsletter, wrote over 100 articles across digital and print, and reported

from 11 countries and 18 cities on five continents. Our cover stars

ranged from the "world's best female chef" Daniela Soto-Innes

to queer icon Jonathan Van Ness and *the* Serena Williams. Find my favorite

reported stories and interviews from Here and beyond, well, here.

From 2015-2017, as the first content editor at THINX, I wrote

a weekly newsletter before weekly newsletters from

brands were cool (read: "annoying" or "excessive") and I was once invited to

Gloria Steinem's apartment to talk period politics. She too loves

a bold accessory and the abolition of the tampon tax!

And because this wouldn’t be a proper personal website without

useless fun facts, my most harrowing wildlife encounters include:

•The time I locked eyes with a mature silverback in Uganda’s Impenetrable Forest

•The time I swam face-to-face with great whites in Gansbaai, South Africa

•The time(s) I stared down a roach the size of my thumb in Crown Heights, BK


Bonus for my fans: I am a whole person with interests outside of work!

I surf (poorly). I eat (well). I cook, dance, and karaoke to early Rihanna (proficiently). I believe we, as a culture, deserve a Bloody Mary emoji. 🥫🍸
