About Me

NYC writer. Editor. Adjunct professor. West Village local. Avid traveler. Music lover. Art and dance enthusiast. Lit nerd. Stylish chick. Proud feminist. New mama. Friend. Daughter. Sister. Wife. I’d like to think I’m equal parts green juice and red wine — with just a dash of tequila added to the mix.

I graduated as an English major from Cornell and received my masters in journalism from New York University. As a print magazine veteran, I now spend much of my professional time writing and editing in the online world. Check out some of my clips … on everything from progressive politics and cultural icons to tips for reducing daily stress.
