Morillo

I'm a writer, an editor, and apparently someone who needs a website for their personal brand!

About Me

Get to know me!

For as long as I can remember I've loved writing. It wasn't until I stood up against my high school's board of education for student press rights that I really channeled my passion and decided to make a career out of it.

I have a B.A. in journalism with psychology and writing minors from Ithaca College's Roy H. Park School of Communications and made it a point to write as much as I could about things I cared about both inside and outside of the classroom. I worked with brands like Latina and The Spark Group as a student to put my SEO strategy, writer's voice, and NYC navigation skills to the test.

 

After graduating, I started as an editorial fellow for Delish.com — one of the top performing brands at Hearst Magazines. Four months into my six month fellowship I was promoted to News Writer. With this title I continued to pitch and write stories daily and develop my knowledge on Ecomm and SEO strategy. About a year later, I was once again promoted to Associate Editor, where I continued writing and working to create our editorial calendars and foster synergy between our editorial and social teams. During my time at Hearst, my work appeared on sites like Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, Women's Health, Harper's Bazaar, and more. Now, I'm the Lifestyle Editor at Bustle where I cover and oversee content on all things seasonal, home, travel, tech, and web culture. When I'm not covering viral trends I'm creating them (hi, Rat Snacks!).

I'm a creative problem solver, an optimistic thinker, and I work well under the pressure of deadlines. I have a particular passion for trendspotting and often joke I'm a "Gen Z correspondent" for work. I pride myself on keeping my ear to the ground on all corners of the internet as long as you don't ask me about my screentime stats. When I'm not scouring social media for the scoop on the latest trends, I'm probably finding a new micro influencer to follow, cooking an intricate meal, or FaceTiming my friends to talk about any of the former.
