Sup yo! Always wanted to try stand up paddle boarding? Here are some beginner tips to get you walking on water this summer.

A published chapter from my working memoir, 104 Raves. Chapter titled, Supergirl. Page 61!

Story
Tagline
Writer. Editor. Storyteller.
Introduction
Growing up in Oakland, CA, my first icon was Punky Brewster; I adored her spunky spirit and funky style. I went to college at The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and then lived 'work hard, play hard' working in advertising. After heading back to the Bay Area, I found myself a professional blogger as Editor of PopSugar Fashion. Now, I am a freelance lifestyle writer living in Venice, CA.
