I’m a freelance writer and reporter.

I like writing about all kinds of things, but I specialize in arts and culture, narrative writing, reviews & criticism, lifestyle and entertainment news.

You can find my bylines in Paste Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Newsweek, Providence Monthly, the Shoe Leather Podcast, The Baltimore Sun, Directed by Women, The New York Daily News, the Hartford Courant, and more. In addition to freelance writing and journalism, I have also taken on marketing/copywriting clients.
