Professional Experience

I'm an experienced lifestyle writer for major consumer publications who's known for submitting elegantly written, well-reported stories. I'm contributing regularly to Google and TODAY.com, the web site for the Today Show. I've also been a contributing editor for PEOPLE.com's food section where I wrote about breaking news, trends, cooking, celebrities and chefs; I also edited stories and updated social media when needed. I've spent the last 15 years writing and editing all types of print and online content, mostly in-house at Conde Nast: I began my career as an editor at Epicurious and later worked as both a travel editor and contributing editor at BRIDES magazine, where I scouted honeymoon destinations and reported on food, party planning, beauty, and fashion. I've also worked as a contributing writer for NYMag.com, covering spas, salons and boutiques. Probably the biggest compliment I get from almost all my editors is that I make their lives easier.
