What I’m up to: I am a Los Angeles-based news editor for HuffPost. I am also working on a book (!) about the history of politics & pop culture intertwining.
Before: In 2017, I moved to Washington D.C. to cover breaking news for CNN Politics. During my time there, I also co-authored the “The Point with Chris Cillizza” newsletter (you can subscribe here). Before that, I worked in L.A. at Mashable, covering digital entertainment; and at the Los Angeles Times.
Home: Native Angeleno (born and raised in Santa Monica), Boston University graduate (B.A. in political science and B.S. in journalism), Anglophile (studied abroad in London in 2012).
My journalism roots: Date back to “The Saba Times,” a paper I wrote at age eight using markers and printer paper. “Bun Bun the pet rabbit runs away” made A1.
Fluent in: Farsi, Spanish (conversational) and AP Style.
Interests: Pop culture, politics, travel and California.
