I love what I do.

For more than 10 years now I've been learning new things and writing about my experiences. A naturally curious person, I appreciate and always look forward to the cycle of discovery that comes with every assignment.

My favorite part of my work is meeting new people, asking lots of questions and finding myself researching the most unexpected topics.

Some highlights so far ...

I've been a regular contributor to publications like C Magazine and Gio Journal; held down the copy desk at national magazine 944; produced a printed monthly beauty column; spent a day interviewing creatives at a hidden artists' community; written about pop princess Jessica Simpson’s day in Phoenix for Us Magazine; highlighted all things luxurious for Haute Living; chronicled my travels to Florence, Barcelona and the Amalfi Coast; edited dozens of interviews with Detroit icons for a collection of portraits called Heart Soul Detroit; interviewed data visualization wizards in Silicon Valley; upheld the "She" side in a printed monthly "He Said/She Said" column; conducted in-depth research about recycling in countries around the world for Earth911's "Trash Planet" series; and served as the senior consulting copy editor for the Modern Luxury family of magazines.

There was also that time ...

I've also served as the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Scottsdale magazine; been an on-camera personality twice a month for the news show Your Life Arizona; covered The Big Game XLIX; and co-written and co-performed a monthly lifestyle web series for fintech company Payoff (now Happy Money).

A few of my favorite interviews ...

A few of my most memorable interviews have been my conversations with fashion icon Simon Doonan; Sex and the City stylist Rebecca Weinberg; fashion designer and activist Lauren Bush Lauren; Russian supermodel Tatiana Sorokko; celebrity trainer Jackie Warner; legendary hairstylist Oribe Canales; Hollywood stuntwoman and actress Tarah Paige; actor and activist Wilson Cruz; actress Rachel Melvin; "auctiontainer" Letitia Frye; and ballerina Arianni Martin.

Outside of editorial pursuits ...

I’m a runner, all-around fitness enthusiast and former barre instructor. I love to explore LA; attend live shows; travel; and hang with my ride-or-die, a blind and deaf shiba inu named Nola.
