With a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Journalism from San Francisco State University, I’ve enjoyed writing content for various outlets over the years. Now as a staff writer for Women’s Health Interactive, I’ve been able to combine my love of writing fun, conversational and informative articles with a topic that has increasingly grown to be important to me: sexual health and wellness.

Nothing has been more satisfying (no pun intended) than being able to write about topics that shouldn’t be taboo. People deserve to embrace their sexuality and learn how to improve not just their relationship with others but with themselves.

I’ve also personally reviewed tons of sex toys and personal lubricants over the past two years (and counting) and love trying new things in the hopes of helping our readers discover new ways to take their pleasure to the next level.

I write under a pseudonym, which allows me to freely express my sexuality and opinions while avoiding potential conflicts in my personal or professional life.
