Hi, I'm Helena! I'm an editor, maker and social media lover interested in creative storytelling with a head full of ideas.
Growing up, I naturally gravitated toward the arts; I was constantly doodling and building towers from empty toilet paper rolls. Fast forward 20-something years and I'm still doodling and making things.
I studied Philosophy and English at the University of Iowa. That's where I fell in love with poets like Whitman and Mary Oliver while studying works of ancient and modern philosophers. I picked up critical thinking skills along with a knack for writing in those years.
And now? I write for luxury hotel brands and do creative things at Rit Dye. Prior to these gigs, I worked at Dose Media, Chicago Magazine, Craft Ideas Magazine and have done freelance work for publications like Bustle and @Properties.
