I’m a Brooklyn-based writer hailing from Chicago. My work has appeared on Vice and the Frisky, and a few other websites where I wrote a lot about sex and crafts (but never at the same time). Now I’m amped to be writing about beauty and health for xoJane.
What I Do, Job-Wise: I work in digital marketing for a publishing company on Madison Avenue where I swear a lot and come up with things like “the Sigh Jar.” (Put a dollar in every time you sigh.) When I’m not in the office, I’m a freelance writer.
What I Do, Fun-Wise: I see a lot of shows (aka, live music—everyone seems to think I’m seeing “Wicked” whenever I say that), eat gluttonously at many delicious restaurants, read a lot of books, and attempt to make perfume out of tiny bottles of vodka.
My Motto: “Every day is a new opportunity to turn it all around.”
My Anti-Motto: “When you wear makeup, you make up who you are.”
The First Movie Star I Ever Had a Crush On: Angelina Jolie (sorry, but not sorry)
My “Celebs to Make Out With” List: I got over my Ryan Gosling thing last year, but if I saw him in person, it’s not like I wouldn’t try to make out with him. Garrett Hedlund (even though his movies suck). Elizabeth Olsen. JLaw.
