Hi ;) it's me, your local vulnerability champion!
I'm a writer, curator and community builder based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Full time, I am the Youth Culture Editor for WGSN. Outside of my day job, I curate events, do memoir writing, and act as the co-founder & creative director of It's Not Personal, a growing anthology & collective inspired by the female dating experience. I also enjoy writing personal essays on topics such as mental health, menstruation, and my body. I try to share deeply personal experiences as a way to break down stigmas around these issues and more.
Currently, I am a mentor for Girls Write Now and I've also taught the precollege program at the Fashion Institute of Technology. In the past, I've organized all kinds of events including poetry readings, writing workshops, art pop-ups, disco parties, panels and coffee meet-ups in New York, Montreal, Los Angeles, London and more.
Things I am passionate about: storytelling, reading memoirs, challenging taboos, mentoring and collaborating with like-minded folks, fostering community and the cathartic powers of creativity, sharing my personal learnings and growing pains, lifting others up and giving them a platform to share their voices, and taking pictures with disposable cameras.
