Professional Experience

I'm a writer + content producer with over a decade of experience in editorial and brand-driven content creation and strategy. I have deep expertise in the areas of fashion/beauty, travel, retail and pop culture. I've worked as a staff writer for the LA Times, WWD and Robb Report and have contributed freelance to outlets including Yahoo Travel, Los Angeles Times magazine, The Daily Beast, W magazine, Los Angeles magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, New York Magazine and Entrepreneur. Past and current corporate clients include Forever 21, Martin Katz, Maybeline and Elie Tahari. I write under daily deadlines, so am very accustomed to short lead times. If you're looking for a clean, concise editorial or brand-voice writer who turns out smart, engaging copy, I'd love to talk to you. Thanks for checking out my profile!
