I currently work as an Overnight Writer for Refinery29, where I write about politics, current events, fashion and beauty trends, and entertainment. 


Past work

CBS interactive

As a Creative Content Producer for CBS, I wrote galleries and blog entries about the network's Primetime, Daytime, and Late Night shows in order to engage its wide audience. 

As lead content creator for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, I came up with content plans and campaigns for CBS.com, support the show's segments (both those that broadcast on-air and those created by digital producers), and support live shows (including election night, the RNC, and the DNC) by writing engaging articles around Colbert's buzz-worthy segments. 

I also covered award ceremonies such as the Academy of Country Music Awards, GRAMMYs, Daytime Emmys, TCAs, and the TONY Awards.


During my time as an editorial fellow, I wrote viral content on a variety of topics — from the California drought to reflections on being a resident assistant in college. 

I received hands-on training in one of the fastest growing news and entertainment companies, and I learned how to craft content that people want to share online. 


Writing and editing for UCSB's Daily Nexus was the most memorable part of my college experience.

As an assistant county news editor, I both assigned and reported stories that were important to the college and Santa Barbara communities. 

While I was the editor of the Artsweek section, I was in charge of both assigning and writing arts and entertainment stories, interviewing musicians, covering live entertainment events, and formatting the layout each week. 


This was my first blog, and is important to me for many reasons — mainly because it serves as a reminder of how much I've grown as a writer. 


During my short time as an intern at Santa Barbara's online newspaper, Noozhawk, I reported on local events such as The Channel City Club, youth theater, festivals, and city meetings.
