Thanks for finding your way to my side of the internet. I'm a journalist based out of California. As a writer in my twenties, I'm surrounded by what often feels like impending doom. And yet almost every day, I get to put words on a screen and give them purpose.
Almost a decade ago, I found writing, and I loved that I got to tell the stories of marginalized communities, including my own. Then a year ago, I found travel writing when I wasn't looking for it. I'm confident I'm doing what I'm meant to do now. Exploring the world has helped me to find myself. The globe is bigger yet smaller than I realized, and I love letting people know it's possible for them to explore it too. One of my greatest strengths is using the duality in my two areas of expertise and making them intersect.
My style of writing is descriptive yet concise. I find that the best pieces do not settle for just text and quotes. Instead, a story must pull a reader in and create dynamic content paired with a fascinating narrative that keeps them reading right until the very end. You can find my work in Buzzfeed, PBS' Rewire, MIC, Matador Network, and more.
Most recently, I've launched The WON Pod, a podcast by the volunteer organization I co-founded, Wellness Online, that began in 2020 to address the mental health crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the host and executive producer, I pride myself on finding special guests, many of whom are experts in their field, to have honest conversations about the collective state of our mental health and who can provide tips and tricks on staying well.
If you're looking for someone passionate about the work, with a creative vision and good at problem-solving, I'd love to get in touch.
