Hi there! I’m Kim, a writer and social media editor with dreams of moving to New York City living in New York City. You can read all about my adventures in the Big Apple and abroad on my travel blog.

I’m a proud graduate of The College of New Jersey, where I studied journalism and professional writing. My path to college was slightly unconventional. You can read about my college journey in this Her Campus article, originally published in 2012.

Some fun facts: I’m fascinated by the Tudors and can’t read enough historical fiction novels about their courtly lives. In my free time I enjoy crafting, exploring NYC and taking photos of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy, Lady. You can follow Lady on Instagram @LadyTakesManhattan.

I love magazines. Give me a mug of Earl Grey tea and a lifestyle mag and I will be content for hours. I feel most at home when I’m sitting in front of my laptop at 3 a.m. typing away, trying to beat the clock to meet a deadline. I’ve written quite a bit through the years, so be sure to check out my portfolio. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing your work published on the web and knowing that it has the potential to be read by a vast audience.

Speaking of audiences, I also love theatre. I started taking voice lessons when I was 9-years-old and began acting shortly thereafter. In college I dabbled with some behind-the-scenes roles, working as a director and costume designer, but my real home is on the stage. Since moving to the city, I’ve become an enthusiastic audience member in my quest to see as many Broadway shows as humanly possible.
