I talk too much, so when I was little, my mom would tell me her ears "needed to rest" a bit. I began to write my thoughts down instead, and I never really stopped. For as long as I can remember, I've been driven by a love for reading, writing, and sharing stories.

I'm the Senior Trends and Features Editor at PopSugar, where I lead a creative team that covers and sets the latest trends. In my 6+ years as an editor, I've been lucky enough to interview some of my favorite stars (ahem, Charlie Hunnam), explore the on-camera world, and write about everything from books to relationships to all things '90s. #TeamNSYNC, for the record.

I'm the youngest of five with roots in Chicago and a home in San Francisco. I graduated from the University of San Diego with a degree in communication studies, and I have a master's in writing and publishing from DePaul University. At Hogwarts, I'd be a Ravenclaw with Gryffindor tendencies.
