I’m a writer with a focus on literature, politics, and culture in general. I also write personal essays and criticism. In addition to writing, I also edit for hire — and work with numerous brand clients on copywriting and editing. Currently, I’m pursuing my MFA in non-fiction writing at Columbia University and working on a manuscript about my family’s exile from Cuba during the Cuban Revolution. My writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Vogue among numerous other publications. I also do on-camera interviews and most recently served as the Wellness Editor at Yahoo.

I graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English.
