Lifestyle writing
My lifestyle stories have been published
in a wide range of magazines and digital
outlets. Check out a few samples below.

My career started in lifestyle writing and it’s taken me down a lot of interesting rabbit holes. I’ve interviewed sex therapists, dating experts, addiction specialists. I’ve gallivanted all over the world doing travel stories. I’ve talked to couples about their beautiful homes and written about all facets of renovating and interiors. I was even a movie reviewer for a decade, so I’ve written a lot on entertainment, and have interviewed hundreds of celebrities.

A lot of the content I’ve written has been for magazines and newspapers but these days I’m increasingly called on to write content marketing pieces across the lifestyle spectrum, too. Here’s a mix of pieces I’ve written, separated into sections.
