Professional Experience

I am a freelance fashion journalist with over a decade of experience in all aspects of television production, along with writing a broad selection of pieces for national magazines - from 3000 word features digging into the industry to profiles, trend and beauty hits, shopping and celebrity style. I have traveled often to New York, Milan and Paris to cover the runway collections and have a deep pool of contacts in all areas of the industry, as well as in my current home base of Los Angeles.
