As a child, I loved telling stories more than anything in the world, whether that meant filling countless notebooks with short stories, hosting my own radio program called “the Fun and Funnier Show,” or convincing my siblings to act in plays I wrote and directed. Born and raised on a farm in Kansas, I moved to Los Angeles to attend film school. After graduation, I furthered my love for storytelling by producing short films, working on country music videos in Nashville, and writing for publications like Ms., the Wall Street Journal, and the Baltimore Sun. In 2015, I joined the editorial staff at Robb Report, a luxury lifestyle magazine based in Malibu. During my four-year tenure as a staff writer and then as the real estate editor, I wrote about luxury travel, dining, and art and envisioned and implemented a content plan that turned the real estate section into one of the top two digital traffic drivers. I now work as a freelance real estate and travel writer. When I’m not jetting off to explore new countries, I can often be found at the beach or on the lookout for the best burger place in Los Angeles.
