Hey, I'm Cortney, an entertainment journalist turned music publishing A&R (Artists and Repertoire) person with an undeniable passion for cooking, baking, and beauty (does this sound like an intro to my online dating profile yet?).

I'm a born and bred East Coaster who just can't seem to stay away from LA. After getting my Masters in Journalism at USC and a short stint in NYC, I've been back in the La La Land for a year now and I'm slowly starting to accept that I just might like it here, traffic and blasé attitudes be damned. 

I equally value fresh, whole produce and a big bowl of ice cream. I cherish aesthetic. I never fail to admire a bold red lip. I adore my family and friends. I appreciate good conversation. In fact, I love storytelling, whether it be listening, reporting, or reminiscing. I'm always down for a road trip as long as it's accompanied by an outstanding playlist(s). And, much like Jodi Picoult, I believe every life has a soundtrack, all you have to do is listen. 

So, I decided to mold all of these things, the essence of who I am, into one space. Share what I've learned and what I love about cooking, music and creating. Perhaps it can serve as an outlet and relatable refuge for others near and far as we all continue to figure it [this thing we called life] out—one bite and one beat at a time.
