In April, 2017, just before I graduated from Emerson College, I was
hired to assist the Editorial Director as Away’s first editorial intern.
By July, our tiny team had launched a boutique print and digital
magazine that published travel guides and in-depth reports on creative
communities and change-makers around the world. As an intern,
associate, and finally the magazine’s Print Editor, I kick-started the
Here Magazine newsletter, wrote over 100 articles, 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 TV star Jonathan
Van Ness and she-who-needs-no-introduction Serena Williams.

From 2015-2017, I was the first content editor at THINX, where I built a loyal following around my weekly newsletter, "This Week In Feminism," 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 cockroach the size of my thumb in Crown Heights, Brooklyn
