I am a pop culture writer, editor, and public relations professional. With over a decade of experience writing, consuming, and marketing pop culture, I allow my passion and love of the creative field to drive my work. My varied professional background allows me to help companies grow with innovative ideas and marketing practices that I have learned from immersing myself in social media, digital media, and editorial work across all facets of the entertainment industry.
Currently, I am working at Marvel Entertainment in the role of Sales and Communications Administrator, planning publishing initiatives and working on PR outreach. I was most recently an Assistant Editor at Entertainment Weekly and a writer for EW.com. With a focus on diversity and female-led media, my writing has also appeared across the web and in print in publications such as Variety, Paste Magazine, Marvel, Mashable, Bustle, CVLUX, Brit & Co., Image+ and more.
I hold a Masters of Science in Journalism from Medill's Northwestern University and a B.A. in English and Communications from George Washington University. As a writer specializing in the beats of television, genre movies, comics, and Broadway, I have conducted interviews with top talent, writers, and directors, reported from hit television sets and red carpets, and provided coverage at major pop culture events such as San Diego Comic Con and The New York Television Festival. My career highlights include commiserating over T.G.I.F. days with Cobie Smulders, getting James McAvoy to curse in traffic, and interviewing the legendary Stan Lee on three separate occasions.
