About me

VLH_NBPTSince graduating from Columbia University’s School of Journalism in 2006, I’ve worked with some the world’s biggest (and smallest) news organizations. I was an editor at The Wall Street Journal from 2011 to 2016, writing and editing food, arts and news coverage to create print and online packages. My writing has been published in The New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, Mansion Global, Penta, The Real Deal, Family Circle, ARTNews, Jane magazine, The New York Sun, and The Union Voice. I started my New York life as the assistant director of the Columbia Publishing Course.

I’ve been to all 50 states, competed in the New York City Triathlon 10 times (yes, that means I’ve survived swimming in the Hudson River 10 times), and create puppets out of recycled material for NYC cabarets. In the summer of 2016, I was a Voices of the Wilderness Artist in Residence in Alaska, with a puppetry focus.

I’m on the steering committee of the Newburyport Literary Festival, and am a 2000 graduate of St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
