Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I'm a seasoned online and print journalist, editor, and copywriter with a passion for news and storytelling. My writing has appeared in numerous publications including the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Times Magazine, Women's Wear Daily, Footwear News, Natural Health, and San Diego magazine.
I know how to make your job easier. I understand your deadline pressure because I've been in your shoes. I know how important it is that you receive well-written, accurate and clean copy on time. And I have the skills and experience to help take some of the worry out of your day.
For 11 years I served as the Senior West Coast Editor at Condé Nast Publications. There, I wrote and edited a variety of news and feature stories about the fashion industry for Footwear News and Women's Wear Daily. As such, a lot of my job centered around celebrities and celebrity fashion lines so I’ve interviewed and written about a wide range of stars including Bryan Cranston, Rachel Bilson, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Debra Messing, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Julianne Hough, and pretty much any other celebrity who has a connection to the fashion industry. I also dealt with CEOs and designers from the biggest names in the industry on a daily basis. And as the special projects and features editor, I came up with the big themes for our issues, conceived all the story ideas and art concepts, assigned work to staff and freelance writers, worked with photographers and art directors, and piloted the projects all the way through to publication either in print, on the web, or both.
