Childhood was like Friday Night Lights, baby! With a degree in Apparel Design from The University of Texas and an internship for Luella (in London *sips tea*) under my belt, I moved to New York City with the hopes of interning for Nylon. No one cared! After working with a trend forecasting company that liked my fashion sketches, trying PR on for size, and styling at Moda Operandi as an editorial assistant, I landed an actual dream job writing for Vogue when iconic editor Sarah Brown hired me onto her Beauty team. Now living in a fantasy space in Chicago, freelance writing is its own modern paradise. You can find my work featured in outlets like Vogue.com, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Paper Magazine, and Wellandgood.com. At the moment, I’m dreaming up a new way to collaborate with brilliant minds and cool hearts across the globe—if you’re one of them, look me up! In the meantime, I’ll be soaking in a whirlpool tub and/or applying layers and layers of skincare whilst listening to a podcast about energetic connectivity.

I grew up in Rhode Island, surrounded by sailboats and oars, and studied art history at Brown University. Rather than work in a museum, I chose to work in magazines. I started my career at SELF and eventually landed at Allure, where I got an education in everything from lipsticks to lasers to lymphatic drainage massages (all in the name of research!). Now as a freelance writer, I write about beauty for a variety of outlets, including T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Vogue, and Conde Nast Traveler. Offline, I chase around my two girls, who are most likely applying nail polish while I’m not looking, attempt to cook everyday, and go for runs as my own form of meditation.
