The Portfolio

Writer, journalist, award-winning blogger, and advocate.

I specialize in lifestyle copywriting and media coverage (fashion, health and wellness), personal essays, and interviews. My work has been featured online and in print internationally in major magazines, books, countless blogs, brands galore and my own various projects. 

As a fashion journalist, I won 2012 Fashion Blog of the Year Award for an interview series I authored in Seattle, syndicated by The Seattle Times. I spent a Year of Service in Americorp, and today use my writing to help further causes  and companies I believe in, which fuels me to be  all the more ambitiously experimental in every word I write.

At age 17, I fought stage 4B Lymphoma cancer, the experience of which continues to shape both the way I live and the way I write. I continually strive to better the lives of fellow survivors through advocacy, public speaking, and my own personal stories. Because the written word is my one true love, my work is deeply personal, insightfully optimistic, yet always respectful of the grit it takes to be an authentic human being.
