I’m kind of tempted to steal this placeholder bio that WordPress suggested: Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
Unfortunately none of that is true, except the part about piña coladas (though I prefer Patron and ginger beer).
Here’s a more accurate bio:
I’m a full-time freelance writer based in South Jersey. I specialize in health writing, personal finance, entertainment coverage, and quizzes — I’ve written more than 200 quizzes for a variety of magazines, websites, and game designers.
After graduating from Rutgers University with degrees in Journalism and Communication, I worked on-staff as Deputy Editor of Twist magazine and a writer at Penthouse. My work has appeared in Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, J-14, New Jersey Monthly, Women’s Health, Girls Life, and online at Yahoo, MSN, HGTV, Fine Living, and more. I wrote teen biographies of Johnny Depp and Jennifer Love Hewitt for Lucent Books, which led to an awkward appearance on E!’s Love Chain about a decade ago. I’ve blogged for AOL, the Diet Detective, and various photography websites, including my own photography site.
When I’m not writing, I love traveling, yoga, and watching Disney movies with my two boys.
