Hello! I am a fashion and lifestyle writer and editor with 10 years’ experience in print and digital media. I specialize in creating cross-platform, multi-channel content, researching and writing engaging features, and managing and producing content to support e-commerce, marketing, and PR initiatives.
I grew up in Calgary, Canada, and obtained a B.A. (Hons.) in Psychology from Queen’s University, Ontario. I then spent six years at FASHION Magazine, Canada’s most-read glossy, with a readership of 2 million, including three as its Western Editor in Vancouver, before being recruited to become Managing Editor at Aritzia, one of North America’s leading women’s contemporary fashion boutiques. I also completed my law degree (J.D.) at the University of British Columbia during this time.
As a journalist, I’ve covered everything from fashion and beauty to food, travel and design for the Business of Fashion, the Wall Street Journal, FLARE, ELLE Canada, NUVO, Canadian House & Home, enRoute, the Vancouver Sun, Chatelaine, Wallpaper, the Globe & Mail, Maclean’s, the Georgia Straight, and Montecristo. I also co-edited the Shops section of Time Out Vancouver: 2nd Ed. and have made numerous TV appearances – a highlight was appearing on NBC’s Today Show during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
In 2011, I moved to London, and am now Editorial Director at THE OUTNET.COM, part of The NET-A-PORTER Group. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and thank you for visiting!
