I had better tell you

who I am, and why.

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 an alum of Emerson College’s honors program (2017) and Boston University’s graduate school of journalism (2023). I specialize in narrative and magazine-style reporting. My writing has been featured in The Boston Globe’s Sunday magazine, Bon Appétit, Punch, Sierra, and elsewhere. I split my time between The Boston Globe’s digital team and other freelance projects under an always-expanding bunch of umbrellas. I’ve held staff and contributor roles at Bustle Digital Group, Cosmopolitan, and InsideHook.


Before grad school, I worked at several start-up publications

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

When I graduated from Emerson in 2017, I moved to NYC as Away’s

first editorial intern. I helped launch Here, an award-winning

multi-platform magazine known for travel guides and narrative reports

on creative communities around the world. As an intern and later 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.

As the first content editor at THINX from 2015-2017, I developed a popular

women’s health blog and 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. 🥫🍸
