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 graduate from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor's degree in Journalism, an emphasis in Magazine Writing and a minor in Film Studies. My bylines can be found in ELLE.com, Bustle, Delish, and more. I'm committed to sharing my latest pop culture musings, reporting on your next favorite streaming series, and always, always reading other voices. I hope you enjoy mine.
