Knotty by nature.

I love macrame, and I love the way Emily Katz has modernized the practice. We talked all things rope for the current cover of Knit Wit!


Praise be.

From OITNB to The Handmaid’s Tale, Samira Wiley’s starred in some of the most feminist shows television has to offer. And we talked about all of it (plus her religious upbringing, her wife, and their geriatric wiener dog Duncan) over glasses of Prosecco on a sunny L.A. afternoon.


Taste the rainbow.

When I went to one of Diane Chang’s pop-up dinners and ate my way through her Chinese medicine–inspired, color-coordinated courses, I had to know more about this chef, her biz Popo’s, and her unique inspiration. We covered all of it in this profile for Tidal (and the images by Anna Wolf are A++!).


The other Natalie Morales.

My love for Natalie Morales runs deep (Trophy Wife was SORELY underrated) and I was beyond thrilled to nab her for the new issue of Tidal. These photos are the cutest/most gorgeous and getting to chat with her over pancakes in my very own neighborhood was how I’d like to spend every Saturday please and thank you.


Eight is great.

It doesn’t seem possible, but here it is: ISSUE 08!! I’m in love with our cover girl Ilana Glazer, and editing the convo between her and our design director Mike Perry and making sense of their heady stoner talk was totally the fun kind of challenge. I can’t even with these images, I mean lookit that jumpsuit, okay?? Every page in this issue is tiiiiiiight and the whole shebang is on sale right now through winter.
