I'm a full-time freelance journalist reporting on people, places, and products: women, culture, travel, business, technology, nature, and cities.
My writing appears in Time, The New York Times, The New Yorker,
The Guardian, The Economist, Departures, and Fortune.
I've been a contributing writer for Mental Floss, Entrepreneur, and Sojourners. I currently write the San Francisco listings for Centurion.Sometimes, I work as an editor. Most recently, I was the first and only
Managing Editor of the bijou, biweekly digital publication The Magazine.
I'm also a photographer. My photos accompany my articles published in Islands, Modern Farmer, Interior Design and Spirituality & Health.
I began my career in radio and currently co-host the Bearcat podcast. I've also appeared as a guest on American Public Media's The Story.
I live in downtown San Francisco with Andreas Haugstrup Pedersen. I received my master's degree from Emerson College in 2008.
