About Me

I sold my soul to journalism the first time I was allowed to subscribe to a magazine. I was 12 and the selection was Teen Vogue. At 17, Vanity Fair entered the fold. I stopped sharing People subscriptions with my mom when I went away to college, opting for my own. The love of storytelling, particularly in the digital and magazine space has never stopped. I care as much about issues of representation in the arts as I do about which designer Meghan Markle wore on her last appearance. 

I am a recent graduate from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism, an emphasis in Magazine Writing and a minor in Film Studies. I was the Vice President of the Mizzou Magazine Club and am committed to sharing a love for the written word, the city that never sleeps, and always, always reading other voices. I hope you enjoy mine.
