As any writer will tell you, there’s nothing more intimidating than a blank page. But in my experience, I find an exciting challenge to it that is unlike anything else. It’s nothing a little coffee can’t help, either.
Let me start filling this page: I'm a writer and editor who focuses on architecture, interior design, disability, and culture. I regularly contribute to Architectural Digest's vertical Clever, Domino, House Beautiful, and MyDomaine. I've been writing for Dwell Magazine since 2015.
On a different but very exciting note, I also co-hosted an episode of the popular podcast Call Your Girlfriend.
My work has appeared in Bon Appétit, Vox, McSweeney’s, Lonny, Food52, Westways, and South Bay Magazine, among other publications. I’m an AFAR Local Expert based on my travel writing, and I edited the official Reach Up blog for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, too.
As the senior editor of Hunker, an architecture and design website that launched in February 2017, I created the overall editorial strategy, voice, and aesthetic. I also hired and oversaw a team of 20 writers, three photographers, and one illustrator. It was a lot of fun, but it was a lot of work. I was the sole editor, social media manager, newsletter creator, and photo director in its first five months. Nevertheless, it all paid off: Hunker grew to an average of nearly 10 million monthly visitors during my 10-month tenure. My favorite aspect of the site, an original essay series expressing writers' many definitions of "home," can be read here.
I have a master’s degree in media and communications from the London School of Economics, and I studied journalism at Chapman University. I grew up in Los Angeles and live in my hometown.
Aside from writing print and digital stories, I also help clients fill blank pages related to copywriting, social media, and branded content. Do you want to hire me to write something? Go ahead and email me. You can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
