Hi — I’m Alli!

I live in Brooklyn, by way of Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. I love reading, fitness, rainbow sprinkles, bright lipstick, watching embarrassing television, exploring the city with my (new-ish) husband Matt and my golden retriever Irv, laughing at my own jokes, and girl chats with my straight-talking friends. After five years surrounded by books working in a dream corporate publishing job, I left my company in September 2016 to pursue my first love: writing.

My work has appeared in Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Real Simple, Medium, The Kitchn, New York Post, Bustle, Brit + Co, Racked, Ravishly, and more. I also run blogs for several small businesses.

I’m the host of the bookish, nostalgic SSR Podcast, which launched in June 2018.
