I'm Olivia.

I currently oversee event curation across The Wing’s three (and counting!) New York City spaces, where I bring an editor's eye to our eclectic programming calendar.

Previously, I wore many hats on the Vanity Fair Comms team and wrote about film, fashion, and books for

In March 2017, I co-founded Constellation: a digital zine + platform that celebrates emerging and established women and non-binary creatives across the globe. My co-editors (filmmaker/actress Jaclyn Bethany and graphic designer/producer Suze Myers) and I launched Issue 3: The American South in July 2018.

You can find my writing on arts + culture in publications across the US and UK, including Vanity FairDazed, Girls at Library, Mythos Mag, VestojAnOtherGirls in Real Life, and Dance Magazine. In recent years, I've interviewed many brilliant minds, including Margaret Atwood, Wes Anderson, Olivier Assayas, Sofia Coppola, Greta Gerwig, Jenny Zhang, Sally Potter, Laura Dern, Zoe Kazan, Frederick Wiseman, and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte. 

In past lives, I've worked in book publishing, served as the editorial and production intern at (the late, great) 29th Street Publishing, and co-hosted The Pulled Thread, a fashion history podcast that unraveled the human stories behind clothes.

In May 2015, I graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University, where I studied English Literature and Dance. 

I look forward to my future as a friendly ghost in a stunning silk cape. (What, you don't think about your sartorial afterlife, too?)
