"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."
"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!"

I grew up in Minneapolis, where I went to an immersion school that taught only in French. I’m a third-generation journalist in my family, whose parents were reporters for The Star Tribune and grandmother had been an editor for The Daytonian in the 1930s-1950s.
I moved to New York after graduating from Indiana University's School of Journalism in Bloomington in 2013. I'm now a staff editor for The New York Times, where I work on the Special Sections and Metropolitan desks, as well as the A2-A3 pages of the newspaper.
Previously, I was the senior editor of Rangefinder, a photography magazine, and the deputy editor of Suited (on hiatus since the pandemic), an independent biannual that focuses on how culture, fashion, design, art and music intersect with politics, identity and global impact.
