I’m journalist, writer and editor with a hunger for new challenges and a willingness to think outside the box. You can find my work in Time Out, the Los Angeles Times, the Sacramento Bee, Mashable, the Huffington Post and Thrive Market.
I’m fascinated by the ever-changing world of digital media. Currently, I write and edit commerce content for Time Out North America. I have also worked in the homepage department at the Los Angeles Times, launched Thrive Market’s health and wellness blog and even dabbled in web project management. I realized my interest in digital products early in my career and chose to major in print and digital journalism with a minor in web technologies and applications at USC. This website is the product of my coding experience.
My curiosity means I’m never bored for very long—something that you can see in the variety of experiences on my resume. In college, I worked as the Editor in Chief, News Editor and the Chief Copy Editor of the Daily Trojan. I have also interned in Governor Jerry Brown's press shop and spent time reporting on state government and politics for the Sacramento Bee.
My life goals include being a contestant on "Jeopardy!", meeting Queen Elizabeth II's corgis and eating as much falafel as humanly possible. I love traveling, cooking (read: eating) and spending time outdoors. I lived in London for a semester and have explored much of Europe already. Next on my travel bucket list? India or Japan.
- I know an impressive (or slightly horrifying, depending on your perspective) amount of Harry Potter trivia.
- I joined Thrive Market as employee No. 12 when I was 21. Now, the e-commerce company employs more than 500 people.
- Growing up, I dreamed of being an archaeologist—and to this day, I’d love to visit Iran and see the ruins of Persepolis.
- It’s quite possible that I’m the biggest fan of the Great British Baking Show outside of the United Kingdom.
- I’ve thrown several parties themed around P. Diddy, also known as Puff Daddy, also known as Diddy, also known as Sean Combs.
- I tap danced for 15 years, and though I’m out of practice, I can probably still pull off a mean cramp roll.
