I’m a lifestyle and culture reporter based in New York. Previously a full-time copywriter who penned articles and fiction on the side, I escaped the cubicle and now write for whomever I want to.
Through my articles, essays, and profiles, I explore overlooked stories, especially issues that impact women, the LGBT community, and people of color. I often write about these experiences through the lens of books, comics, television, and more.
My articles have appeared in The Atlantic, NBCNews.com, NYMag‘s The Cut, The New York Daily News, Jezebel, The Hairpin, and others. My humorous fiction has been published in McSweeney’s and Splitsider.
I teach writing through Skillshare and previously taught fiction writing at 3rd Ward.
I’m originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of California at Berkeley.
