I had better tell you
who I am, and why.
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, a multi-platform magazine specializing in travel guides
and in-depth 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.
