I’m a writer, editor, and year-round iced coffee fiend, in no particular order. I pay rent in Brooklyn, but I live in the moment.

I work as an Editorial Assistant at Viacom’s LGBTQ brand, Logo, where I manage daily administrative tasks, work on fancy multimedia projects, and write about gay stuff. I’m an American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) internship alum and an Outstanding Graduate from the SUNY New Paltz Department of Digital Media and Journalism. My work has appeared in print or online at VICE, Yahoo Lifestyle, The Riveter, Chronogram, Hudson Valley Magazine, and more.
