With a focus on culture, subculture, and human interest stories, I’ve written on everything from Subway dining with Justin Bieber to savoring truffles with Alain Ducasse; from waiting out a blizzard at a homeless encampment to panhandling with St. Marks punks; from women and drinking to dating in nursing homes.
My stories have appeared in New York (where I am a Contributing Editor), Rolling Stone (where I’m a frequent contributor), Details, Glamour, Telegraph (UK), Marie Claire (Australia), and Southern Living, among many others. Anthologie info TK.
Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2002 with a degree in English. After completing the Columbia Publishing Course, I worked as an editorial assistant for Penguin’s Riverhead imprint and then as an assistant editor at Random House. The first story idea I pitched to New York magazine led to an assignment that became the cover story of the February 6, 2006 issue. Since then, I’ve worked steadily as a freelance writer and reporter. I live in Brooklyn with my husband and an ever-growing pile of magazines and books that threatens to one day overtake us.
