Growing up in Oakland, CA, my first icon was Punky Brewster. I adored her spunky spirit and funky style. I went to college at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and then lived 'work hard, play hard' working in advertising. After heading back to the Bay Area, I found myself a professional blogger as Editor of PopSugar Fashion. Now, I am a freelance lifestyle writer.

A passionate creative, a wordsmith, and a world traveler, I live life to the fullest and draw inspiration along the way. Idea generation, trend forecasting, and curating experiences come naturally to me and are what I do best. I write a lot too. When I'm not typing away, you'll find me dancing, swimming, skiing, hiking, eating, traveling, or relaxing.

It should be no surprise my favorite holiday is Halloween.
