Lifestyle writing and photography have been an ongoing passion of mine since waaay back. My teen dream was to someday take over as the editor-in-chief of Sassy magazine. Yep, it was that long ago.
Back in the early ’90s, I was a literary and media arts major at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC, and was co-editor of the school newspaper in my senior year. I kept writing through my college years — mostly movie and music reviews and features for the George Washington University Hatchet. The Hatchet named me their “most valuable arts writer” senior year, and I graduated summa cum laude in journalism and art.
Well, Sassy magazine folded in 1996, but my teen dream stayed, evolving into online journalism and the blogosphere. I have written for MTV online, ModernRock.com, and also wrote a weekly humor column for Village Voice online. For 13 years. Wow.
I currently photograph and write for LincolnAndRose.com, Losanjealous.com, and my own up-and-coming LA music/scene blog AttractiveStrangers.com. And I am ALWAYS looking for more sassy opportunities involving writing and photography. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
