Welcome to my website!
My name is Monica — I am a freelance writer covering music, hollywood & entertainment. This past summer, I was an editorial intern and reporter for Forbes Magazine’s Media & Entertainment section, after starting as a music contributor for the website. While at Forbes, I’ve worked on some of the magazine’s big lists, including the 2019 Celebrity 100 Issue and The World’s Highest-Paid DJs. I was also able to conduct in-depth interviews with artists like Luis Fonsi, Ashley Tisdale, Lauv, Ross Lynch and more.
I previously worked at Billboard Magazine, where I contributed more than 150 articles relating to music, entertainment and music industry news. At Billboard, I authored compelling music features and premieres for Billboard.com, and carried out editorial duties for the print magazine.
In 2017, I was a beauty and fashion freelancer for the online magazine StyleCaster, after starting as an editorial intern in the summer of 2017. At StyleCaster, I wrote articles focusing on beauty, fashion and entertainment, attended beauty brand marketing events and interviewed prominent members of the beauty and entertainment fields.
I’m currently completing my Bachelor of Art’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication at George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs. Contact me here to learn more!
