Starting as a doe-eyed entertainment journalist in Los Angeles, I found inspiration everywhere I looked and listened. I was a freelance contributor to Premiere, Rolling Stone, and Request, as well as the Managing Editor for Entertainment@Home magazine. I then transitioned into creating content and marketing for board games, and held staff positions at Mattel and Cranium. Around that time, I was honored to be a Board Member for the Global Children's Organization and to help kids in war zones learn the meaning of play and love. I guest lectured at schools and colleges alike.
