For as long as I can remember, I have been a writer. At the age of 13 I began my professional writing career, penning guest reviews of the Harry Potter series and other children's literature for the Boston Herald. Shortly thereafter a friend gave me an invite code to Livejournal, where I began my own personal blog. Through blogging I developed what would become my greatest strength: a unique, humorous, and approachable voice.
In 2009 after spotting an ad on Craigslist looking for bloggers, I decided to pursue my passion professionally and joined the team at CliqueClack to write about entertainment, primarily on the subject of television. I also participated in an internship with John Wilpers through Emerson College, which solidified my social media credentials and allowed me to be published in FIPP's Innovation in Magazines report for 2010. I have written for multiple sites - including HelloGiggles and SBNation - on a wide range of topics such as feminism, sports, food, and politics. My writing was featured as one of Wordpress.com's best in August of 2012. In the spring of 2016 I worked with the NDI's Women in Democracy department copyediting slideshow presentations and internal documents. I also have experience in creating multiple types of content besides writing, including visual, audio, and video content. Some of this work has been featured through actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's collaborative production company, hitRECord, in publications and through the Emmy-winning HitRECord on TV series.
I live in Boston and currently am a student at UMass Amherst's University Without Walls program majoring in Digital Communications. I've taken classes at Harvard on Political Communication, Multimedia Journalism, and Designing Educational Media. I also work as the social media manager for the American Gerbil Society, writing and managing copy across multiple platforms with the aim to increase membership, awareness, and engagement. In my free time I like to tweet a lot about my gerbils and hockey, visit art museums, bake, and binge Netflix while doing the occasional embroidery project.
