Professional Experience

Former magazine editor turned freelance writer, blogger and social media geek. My specialties lie in beauty, fashion, bridal and luxury lifestyle pieces with a particular knack for writing profile pieces. I've landed bylines in publications like BBC Travel, Everyday with Rachael Ray and in-person interviews with industry pros like Christian Louboutin and Laura Mercier. I specialize in magazine editorials, custom publishing, writing for the web and also offer copywriting services and ghost blogging.
