Born and raised in Miami, FL, I grew up in a family that taught me the value of making a living as a creative early on. As a child, I watched my father work night gigs just to pursue his passion for music. The garment racks in my grandmother’s clothing factory were my playground; I designed clothes for my Barbie dolls as she produced hand-embroidered couture pieces as easily as if she were spinning gold thread. Because of them, I developed my love of art, music, and fashion.
I’ve been writing since the age of 6 when I figured out I could be a princess, a rock star, or a fashion designer if I could just put my pencil to paper quickly enough and string the details together. I’ve followed that concept into my adult life, peering into other people’s dreams and writing about the stuff great things are made of – food, art, style, music, and everything colorful in between.
Thanks to a shared love of good food and television, I married my favorite person in 2009 and have been taking on the world with him ever since. Our little family now consists of our feisty cat, Sunny, our sweet stray-turned-princess cat, Luna, and our amazing daughter, Lucy. (We sorely miss our Pomeranian Romeo, who gave us 14 wonderful years).
I currently work as a content manager, copywriter, digital content strategist, editor, and blog manager. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to work together.
