Alexis Morillo is the Lifestyle Editor at Bustle, where she oversees coverage on food, travel, home, holidays, tech, viral trends, and astrology. She reports on one-off viral trends as they pop up on TikTok, seasonal moments and gift guides, and bigger-picture features about how the latest internet obsessions came to be.
Before Bustle, Alexis was an Editorial Fellow, News Writer, and, ultimately, an Associate Editor at Hearst Magazines for Delish where she covered all things food news and TikTok trends. She was listed as one of Muck Rack’s top 10 most-searched journalists of the year in 2021 and again in 2022. Alexis’s work has also appeared in Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, and Latina Magazine. She has a degree in journalism and psychology from Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications.
When she’s not writing or editing, Alexis is likely drinking an iced matcha latte (with coconut milk), blowing up her group chat to tell everyone to look at the moon, adding new makeup products to her online cart, quoting a TikTok reference no one understands, or pickling just about anything you could imagine. You can follow Alexis on Instagram @alexismorillo or can connect with her on LinkedIn, and can learn more about her and her work at www.alexismorillo.com.
