I had better tell you
who I am, and why.
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.
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’m a digital producer and culture reporter for the
Boston Globe, and a frequent contributor to Cosmopolitan,
Bustle Digital Group, 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. 🥫🍸
