I have attended at least 3,000 concerts in my life. Most of them were hard rock shows in NYC and Philly, but I almost went deaf seeing One Direction. I am New Jersey-born and raised, own every black eyeliner on the market and won't go outside sans lip gloss. I have written for Kerrang!, Alternative Press, Revolver, Teen People, PopCrush, ABC News and Spin.com. I am also a music publicist, specializing in rock bands, having worked at Roadrunner Records for 12 years. Now, I run my own boutique aka cool kids PR firm. Huzzah! My BFF is Higgins, my English bulldog. I only wear black, consider a leather jacket my wardrobe staple and crush hard on Marc Jacobs, Elizabeth + James, Meredith Kahn and Mandana Dayani.
