I am a freelance writer living by the beach in Southern California. I write about books, food, travel, art, technology, health and design. I have written reported features, essays, reviews, and interviews for the Los Angeles Times, Eater, AFAR Magazine, New York Magazine, Refinery29, SAVEUR, Gucci, Extra Crispy, What Youth, Los Angeles Magazine, Electric Literature, The Millions, The Wirecutter, L.A. Weekly, Lifehacker, Huffington Post Arts, Apartment Therapy, Beautiful/Decay, Art Ltd., CSQ, Daily Serving and Radiant. I edited Digital Photographer from 2008-2012.
My fiction and poetry appear in Connu and L.A. Weekly.
I hold a Masters of Professional Writing from USC and a Bachelor’s in Art History from Cal State University Channel Islands.
When I’m not writing, I am reading, cooking, eating, and adventuring with my husband and our two little kids. We also own a brewery in Ventura, and, if you’re interested, you can find our beer across the lower half of California: madewest.com.
