Highlights

I’m a New York-based journalist who covers beauty and wellness, food and travel, and lifestyle. My work has appeared in Forbes, Fortune, ELLE, Departures, Air Mail, Travel Leisure, and Women’s Health, among other outlets, and I have a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Columbia University and a Master’s Degree in English from the University of Edinburgh. I have been lucky enough to travel across the world, meet the change-makers and rule-breakers of various industries, and get an inside look at the trends that define our era, and I aim to share that knowledge with my readers. Confronted by a growing influx of information and content, I know how challenging it can be to find voices you can trust in this day-and-age. I believe it’s more important than ever to produce reliable stories that are backed by my own experience and the expertise of my sources, and, whether writing about a new beauty movement, demystifying a popular ingredient, or profiling an industry disruptor, I strive to do just that.

Experience

I started my career as an editor at Condé Nast, where I had the opportunity to work across many of the company's outlets. For the last two years, I have been freelance, contributing to a number of publications, including Forbes, Fortune, and Women's Health, and covering everything beauty and wellness, consumer-facing business, and more.

Education

I have a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Columbia University and a Master’s Degree in English from the University of Edinburgh.
