I live for learning bts minutia of my favorite films and tv shows, so getting the back story about Emma Stone’s instantly iconic yellow La La Land dress from the woman who designed it for Vulture was a real dream nerd moment for me.

So thrilled that the¬†wonderful ladies of Bird asked me to chat about writing, L.A., and the twisty-turny path I’ve taken. Tldr version: dream big!

Grateful that I got to channel all of my post-election rage into concepting and editing this epic feature story for the Feb/Mar issue of BUST, which includes tips for protesting, an organizing how-to, a Q&A I did with one of the BLM co-founders, and much, much more. This is what resistance looks like!
