Last month, I finally got a chance to meet Taylor Transtrum, a writer for Modern Luxury Scottsdale. Her story is a great one – and she has all sorts of story needs. Take a look!
I started out as an editorial intern there during my junior year of college. After my internship ended, they asked me to stay on as a writer and, of course, I said yes!
A bit. Before becoming part of the “ModLux” family I did a few stories for The Arizona Republic. I’ve also done some writing for a couple of school publications including The State Press at ASU and Blending Magazine. Prior to switching my major to journalism, I was a “fashion guru” for College Fashionista and wrote weekly street-style articles focusing on college fashion trends. I also used to run my own fashion blog, which is what originally got me hooked on writing.
I grew up in a small suburban city in Idaho and moved to Arizona for college. Although my home state will always have a special place in my heart, I'm an Arizona convert and plan to stay here after I graduate from ASU Walter Cronkite this May.
I like such a vast and odd mix of music, but if I had to choose just one genre, I would say that I primarily listen to indie.
Black or pastel purple.
I love working on stories and doing interviews at Sip Coffee House in Old Town. Another remote office favorite of mine is Maverick Coffee. I adore Phoenix Market Cafe in downtown Phoenix and frequently stop in there for a bite to eat after class. For vintage shopping, I love to hit up the Melrose District and on the weekends you’ll find me at my favorite neighborhood watering hole, Casey Moore’s.
Florence, Italy! I studied abroad there my sophomore year of college and it will always have a special place in my heart.
This is a hard one for me as I’m a pretty adventurous eater… but I would have to say Italian food is always a good choice.
I’m always on the hunt for interesting luxury and lifestyle stories!
