About Steph


Hey, I’m Stephanie! I write, edit, illustrate…and can hula hoop on one foot while drinking a glass of vino (preferably Bordeaux!).

As a journalist/editor with a crazy passion for travel and design, my work has appeared in Dwell, Vogue, Travel + Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, Coastal Living, Afar, ForbesLife, CNN Travel, California Home+Design, The New York Times Style Magazine, DailyCandy, Spa Magazine, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Print, HOW, Salon.com, Communication Arts, Metropolis, ReadyMade, Azure, Luxury Travel Magazine Australia, San Francisco Chronicle, 7×7 SF, San Francisco Magazine, SF Brides Magazine, SF Weekly, Design Bureau, and more.

Along with writing, I’ve honed a rare expertise as a luxury hotel consultant. I know what makes for a phenomenal guest experience—and what can kill the stay—and your business. Interested? Learn more.

In the visual, I create satirical illustrations and art (many of which are inspired by my travels). My graphite and watercolor drawings have been featured by a variety of publications including Illustration Age, Entrepreneur, NPR, and HOW Magazine. My travel photography has appeared in Vogue, Travel+Leisure, and Forbes.
