Hi! I’m a freelance journalist in Los Angeles for many of your favorite magazines. I write features, profiles, and essays on music, weed, and pop culture; I also love doing video documentaries and podcasts. My first book ‘WEED: You Want To Know But Are Always Too Stoned To Ask’ was published on 4/20/19 by Random House + Prestel Publishing.

I’m interested in exploring underground subcultures (especially raves and drugs), technology and futurism, the weird side of Hollywood, environmentalism & wellness, and emerging trends in the cultural zeitgeist. Championing women, people of color, and queer communities in my work is a given.

I was an electronic music editor at VICE in New York City from 2014-2017, and was named “Best Music Editor” by The Village Voice, and one of Brooklyn’s most influential people by Brooklyn Magazine. Now I live in Los Angeles and write for New York Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, GQ, VICE, FADER, Pitchfork, and a bunch of other publications.

I also throw a party called Weed Rave that combines daytime discussion panels, sound baths, cannabis cooking classes, and CBD yoga with an all-night dance party! Hope to see you on a dancefloor soon~
