My name is Melissa and I love telling stories.

I have since I was little. While people like to say that a picture is worth a thousand words, I believe a story is worth a thousand images (probably more). Instead of pestering relatives to read my fictional stories, I found a place in the media industry 16 years later–this time pestering much larger audiences to read my work.

I'm currently in NYC working for Bauer Xcel Media as an editorial and e-commerce assistant. Beauty, fashion, and lifestyle writing are my specialties. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by.
