Beauty Director

An established voice in beauty, I’m the beauty director of Harper's Bazaar as well as the co-founder/co-host of the award-winning podcast, Fat Mascara. Each week on Fat Mascara, I interview some of the most influential names in beauty, from Charlotte Tilbury to John Demsey to Jawara. I’ve also been the Beauty and Health Director at Teen Vogue, creating beauty, wellness, and lifestyle content specifically for socially conscious Millennial and Gen Z audiences. In my career, I've been a beauty editor at Cosmopolitan, Allure, and W, among others, and have contributed to international publications including Grazia, Tatler, and British Elle.

I've received the Refinery29 Beauty Innovator Award, The Fragrance Foundation Editorial Excellence Award, and I’m also a regular contributor on Today.

Outside of editorial, I worked in London with Space NK as Brand Messaging Manager. Since then, I have worked with many brands as a consultant and copywriter.

On the weekends, you can find me looking after my baby daughter, Lake, snuggling with my cat, or scouting out New York’s best new spa treatments.
