I'm an award-winning L.A.-based journalist focused on marginalized individuals and those living on the outskirts of society. My work interrogates dominant narratives around cultural roles to tell stories about transcending traditional limitations of identity.


I previously worked as a Contributing Editor at Playboy, and my work was anthologized in Little America: Incredible True Stories of Immigrants in America (Macmillan, 2020), the book that served as inspiration for the Apple Original Series.


I've profiled actors such as Lily Gladstone and activists like Pussy Riot's Masha Alyokhina, gone on the road with a female long-haul truck driver, exposed sexism in Hollywood, and immersed with women making lowrider culture their own


My writing has been recognized by the Los Angeles Press Club, the California Press Women's Association, the National Federation of Press Women and the Media Industry News Editorial Board. I've been published in the New York Times, The Washington Post, LA Weekly, Los Angeles Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Condé Nast Traveler and more.

I hold an MFA in literature and creative nonfiction from Bennington College and a BA in music from New York University. I teach creative nonfiction privately and at Gotham Writers Workshop, and am at work on a memoir.
