I'm digging deep into L.A.'s hidden corners to uncover answers to your questions about our city.

I also write and produce our newsletter, LAist Daily.

As an award-winning journalist who's covered local, national and international news for more than a decade, my work focuses on how existing systems, policies and cultural norms affect individuals and communities.

You can find my writing in The New York Times, The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Playboy, the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, VICE, Los Angeles Magazine, GOOD, Conde Nast Traveler, MEL Magazine, Inked, The Hairpin and more. A Boston native and graduate of NYU, I live in Silver Lake with my husband, son and dog.
