I'm a freelance writer and editor writing out of Los Angeles, California. My work focuses on thoughtful TV and film criticism, and in the past I've written about subjects like acting, feminism, production design, science fiction, politics, and more in those mediums.

I also have experience as both an editor, news producer, copy editor, social media and homepage manager, and general news reporter. You can find my byline in places like Vulture, Polygon, Shondaland, Quartz, Little White Lies, SeattlePI, Bright Wall/Dark Room, and more (you can find those links below). If you're reading this, I'd love to work with you! In a nutshell:

I currently work as a TV writer at Bustle and a social media producer at FiveThirtyEight. I'm also a senior editor with Bright Wall/Dark Room, an online film magazine with off-beat, deeply human takes on film and television. There I'm responsible for copy editing the magazine, reading and reviewing submissions, updating and managing Instagram, assisting with podcast production, and editing selected pieces for publication.

In 2020 I earned at a Master’s in Specialized Journalism (The Arts) from the USC’s Annenberg School of Communication. I also served as the editor-in-chief of the arts and culture magazine Ampersand. That's also where I co-founded the 30 Flirty + Film newsletter.

I'm also a member of GALECA, the society of LGBTQ+ entertainment critics. In 2018 I appeared as a panelist in the Seattle International Film Festival’s “Why film criticism?” panel, hosted by Brendan Harris of The New Yorker.

In 2017 I was hired as a producer for the SeattlePI, working as a general news reporter and producer, which entailed managing the homepage, which averaged 500,000 pageviews a day, as well as Twitter and Facebook handles.

I graduated from the UW journalism program, and served as the editor-in-chief at LexBlog (specifically the network LXBN). You may also know me from the film review blog, Pulp Diction. In even more of a nutshell, I'm a young adult who watches things and walks a lot.






I also run the newsletter 30 Flirty & Film with my friend, Cate Young. We started the newsletter under COVID-19 shelter-in-place frustration: In an effort to not let the curiosity of our minds and movie preferences atrophy, we decided to set a goal for ourselves for a weekly newsletter. Each Friday, we put out a newsletter with two pieces (one from each of us!), each written in under 30 minutes in response to something we watched.
