I'm a journalist and editor based in Los Angeles, where I cover culture and writes about the Mojave desert whenever possible. I've served on the editorial staff of LA Weekly, LAist and LA magazine, and my freelance reporting has appeared in Vice, Rolling Stone and The Washington Post. I was previously a lifestyle and culture reporter at TakePart and a journalism fellow at Tablet magazine. I was named a finalist for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Digital Journalism Article in 2016, the same year I won 1st place awards from the LA Press Club in the categories of Online Lifestyle Feature and Entertainment News.
