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 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, HelloGiggles, The Kitchn, New York Post, Bustle, Brit + Co, Racked, Ravishly, and more. I also work closely with several brands and businesses on managing their blog and web content, and partner with first-time authors on developing their manuscripts. I have my own book project in the works, too!

I’m also the creator and host of the bookish, feminist-y, nostalgic SSR Podcast, which launched in June 2018 and regularly appears in the top-ten of the iTunes Literature charts.
