About Me

About Me

Born and raised in Los Angeles, my passion for fashion and writing started at a very young age. From writing poetry, to being published at the age of 15 and writing for local magazines such as 944 Magazine and LA Magazine, writing became a natural way for me to express myself. With an eye for design and fashion, I pursued a degree in graphic design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and shortly after a degree in Journalism at Arizona State University.

After working for top e-commerce brands such as Farfetch and JustFab, I decided to leave the LA life and pursue a new life in the PNW as assistant editor of a magazine. It was then that my true passion for all things brunch was ignited.

As someone who loves brunch and trying new places, Brunchinista is the perfect combination of food, style and beer and wine adventures. As I journey through my new city of Portland, I find myself documenting hikes, exploring nature and the beauty of Oregon, dressing a lot more casual, looking for the perfect brunch place and connecting with some truly amazing creatives that wander the streets of the city in hopes of inspiring one another.

Follow along my journey as Brunchinista and as the true city explorer guiding you through all things Oregon, PNW and beyond.
