Hi, I’m Zoë.

Young, black, and writing.

I'm a twenty-something culture and entertainment journalist with a love for music and an eye for film. As a recent college graduate based in my hometown of Los Angeles, I am happy to put my words into the world.

Aside from writing, my other career objectives include public relations, media marketing, and giving back to local communities through arts outreach and non-profit work.
