I had better tell you

who I am, and why.

In short:

Narrative writer

Freelance

Bicoastal

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,

and elsewhere. I’m a digital producer for the Boston Globe, I frequently write

for Cosmopolitan and Bustle Digital Group, and I freelance.


Before grad school, I helped build out 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 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. 🥫🍸
