USA Today

I am currently freelancing for the EntertainThis! blog site, where I write about movie, TV and pop culture news. I also write news pieces for the LIFE section and live blog awards season coverage including the Oscars, Golden Globes and Grammys.

See my latest stories here.

I interned at USA TODAY as the Health, Science and Environment Intern from June 2014-August 2014. I wrote 31 articles and blog posts during this time for both the News and Life sections, seven of which appeared in the print edition.
