About Me

I’m a freelance blogger and copywriter living in Charlotte. I’ve written for CBS Radio, The Huffington Post, Thought Catalog, Hello Giggles, Bustle, The Frisky, and other fun sites and magazines.


In case you didn’t figure it out, that’s me.

I’m a 2010 Syracuse University grad (GO ORANGE!) who loves the Yankees, local radio, girls’ nights, iced coffee, classic rock, dogs that wear people clothing, blooper reels, award show acceptance speeches, and rainy Sundays. A few fun facts about me:

  • I know way, WAY too much about pop culture, particularly pop culture circa 2002ish. If Justin and Britney did it, I remember it.
  • I have two middle names.
  • I know inspirational quotes are cheesy and overdone, but I love them anyway.
  • I’m really good at getting myself into awkward situations. I don’t hate it though. I find awkwardness amusing sometimes.
  • I’m TERRIFIED of insects of any kind. I keep a can of Raid in every room of my apartment. As a result, my children will probably have three heads.
  • I still love the smell of Abercrombie Fierce. I guess I never got over 8th grade.
