Hailing from the west suburbs of Chicago, I am currently a content writer for FarePortal, writing landing pages for the various CheapOair brands. It might seem strange (or, if you’re familiar with the industry, perfectly appropriate) that I’m working in marketing after getting two journalism degrees, but I’ve realized that what I enjoy most is travel writing, and I get to do quite a lot of it at FarePortal.
I’m passionate about colorful, compelling writing and am experienced in both print and online journalism covering a variety of topics including local news, beauty, fashion/style, personal finance, food, relationships and lifestyle. I am an excellent copy-editor with a keen eye for detail, a skill I hone as the print copy-editor for AList Magazine, which I do in my spare time.
I wouldn’t say that I’ve left journalism for good; my goal is simply to tell stories through print or multimedia.

One piece I’m proud of but didn’t get published was written during my first semester at NYU; I was inspired by M. Alice LeGrow to look into the lives of women who work as birthday party princesses. Read it here: A Tale of Professional Princesses
As part of a pop culture and entertainment writing course I took, I contributed weekly to our class blog. Read my posts here: NYU Pop Culture
