THE FEATURES

(SOME LONGER STUFF)

"I just emailed Joe personally to show him the article, it's so considered and beautifully written!!! I’m not usually this gushy over articles but you have a way with words, lady! You’ve captured the essence of who he is and I really appreciate that as that side of him I feel is seldom shown." 
Anisa Topan

"A lot of times I think things get a little twisted or lost in translation somehow, but you hit it on the head. Really great and thorough piece. Had to say thank you for the attention to detail and spot-on portrayal of me and my thoughts and general ideas. By far the most accurate to date!" 
Cait Oppermann

MAKING MAGIC

HELLO

I grew up in Minneapolis, where I went to an immersion school that taught only in French. In 2013, I graduated from Indiana University's School of Journalism in Bloomington, and I moved to New York. 

By day, I'm the senior editor at Rangefinder, an online photography magazine where I began as an intern the summer after college. 

 

After hours, I'm the deputy editor at Suited magazine, an independent biannual that focuses on how culture, fashion, design, art and music intersect with politics, identity and global impact.

 

And I'm a freelance reporter and writer for The New York Times (here are my stories).
