I began writing from my bedroom in suburban Georgia.
Flannery O'Connor is quaking.
I created my first blog when I was fifteen years old and have been writing ever since. During that time I worked as a staff writer and editor for my high school's Literary Magazine and wrote for the local Atlanta music blog This Sound Goes Around. I then attended The University of Georgia where I majored in English Literature before transferring to my alma mater, Hunter College, in New York City. My B.A. is in Media Studies and I graduated with a minor in English Literature. During my gap year, I worked as the Chief Marketing Officer for AIESEC, the world's largest youth-run organization. During my term, I spoke at the United Nations Youth Assembly on a panel about travel and social good and wrote copy on marketing campaigns for students seeking internships and volunteer experiences abroad. Youth issues have always been at the heart of my work.
Throughout college, I continued writing for a variety of online publications including Vinyl Mag, Paste Magazine, and The Huffington Post before making my way into the big leagues. I developed and self-printed three issues of a zine for young artists in 2017 called Shiny People Zine. You can now find my bylines at NYLON, Hello Giggles, Rookie, Adolescent, i-D, BuzzFeed, and elsewhere.
I am currently represented by Jill Marr at Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.
