I am an editorial intern at Forbes covering media and entertainment, with a focus in music. I previously was at Billboard, where I contributed more than 150 articles relating to music, entertainment and music industry news. I have conducted interviews with rising and established music artists, including Luis Fonsi, Ashley Tisdale, Lauv, Kelsea Ballerini and Sarah Hyland, to name a few. Before Billboard, I was a freelance writer for StyleCaster, where I covered pop culture news, beauty trends and entertainment.
