About Me

October 15, 2019

Photographer: Amber Han

Welcome! I’m a freelance journalist, focusing on topics like health, wellness, dating, relationships, beauty and lifestyle. I’m author of The Love Gap: A Radical Plan to Win in Life & Love (Grand Central Life & Style, January 2018), a dating guide for modern women trying to navigate today’s complicated romantic landscape. I also pen a weekly relationship advice column, PureWow's 'Between the Sheets.' My work has appeared in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, ELLE, O, Real Simple, Man Repeller and The Washington Post, among others. 

Among my other interests, I'm a huge Myers-Briggs and enneagram nerd, and I regularly analyze people (and myself) through personality tests. I grew up playing softball and basketball, and will basically get jazzed about any sport. I live for ideas — even if others see them as far-fetched, impossible, or downright crazy. I love rom-coms, and one of the universe's recent great gifts has been their resurgence. This year, I re-binged The Mindy Project, fell in love with Four Weddings and a Funeral and To All the Boys, and couldn't stop talking about Always Be My Maybe.

I'm a romantic at heart. I have a passion for love, dating and relationships, as well as all the ways those topics intertwine with mental health, wellness, psychology and a person's unique story.
