Please provide a brief introduction to yourself & GLAMOUR

I'm the Senior West Coast editor at Glamour and based in Los Angeles. I cover all things entertainment with a focus on TV and film, as well as actor profiles. I also write celeb beauty features, and am a judge in the Glamour Beauty Awards. I moderate panels (i.e. Outlander, Emily in Paris, The Flight Attendant, etc.) on behalf of the brand and appear on entertainment shows here in the US to talk about what's hot in entertainment. I love traveling (London is my favorite big city), eating, and napping.

Give us the inside scoop, what is your favourite part about working as Senior West Coast Editor?

Being able to collaborate with so many TV series and actors that work in Los Angeles, and bring their projects to the Glamour audience.

If you could give a PR advice on what to do to get your attention and secure coverage with you - what would it be?

What is the best press event you have ever been to?

Charlotte Tilbury recently did facials with Georgia Louise in Los Angeles ahead of Oscar weekend. Georgia does the best facials, and then we got to take home all of CT's skincare products.

Tell us all about your book on The Big Bang Theory!

I'm super excited about this, as it's the biggest project I've ever undertaken in my career (although it was the equivalent of another full time job, which I don't recommend doing! I'm very fortunate to have such a supportive editor-in-chief, Samantha Barry, at Glamour, who let me do this.) It is the oral history of the hit sitcom, The Big Bang Theory---basically, the behind-the-scenes story of how the series became one of the most popular in TV history by the producers, writers and the actors. The entire cast (Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik) all did brand new interviews (totalling over 100 hours) and went more in-depth than they ever have before. They revealed deeply personal moments, secrets, and stories that everyone from the most die-hard viewer to casual fan will find fascinating. It comes out on October 11, 2022, and I couldn't be more excited.

Tell us something fun that people don't know about you?

I don't have my ears pierced. The thought of anything going through my ear gives me the chills. Can't do it. It's like nails on a chalkboard for me. lol.
