About

Hi! I'm Olivia.

You can find my work in publications across the US and UK, including Vanity FairVestojAnOther
Girls in Real Life, NarrativelyDance Magazine, and Lumen. In recent months, 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. 

I'm currently on the Vanity Fair Comms team, where I work closely with the Hive, VF's vertical devoted to the intersection of business, politics, and technology. 

In March 2017, I co-launched Constellation: a digital magazine and platform that celebrates emerging and established female/non-binary identifying creatives across the globe. My co-editors (filmmaker/actress Jaclyn Bethany and graphic designer/illustrator/producer Suze Myers) and I are currently at work on Issue 3, slated to launch summer 2018. Stay tuned!

In past lives, I've worked in book publishing, served as the editorial and production intern at (the late) 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?)

Say hello!
