  • Felicia researched, wrote for, (and modeled for!) a pull-out fashion supplement for the Palo Alto Weekly.
  • She also researched and wrote articles on travel and lifestyle for several airline inflight magazines.
  • Felicia was also a regular participant and nine-time winner of the Salon Kitchen Challenge, a weekly cooking and food-writing competition hosted by Salon.com between 2010 and 2012.


Raised in Hollywood (her childhood home was five minutes from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and she could literally see the Hollywood sign and Madonna's house from the chair at her childhood dentist's office), Felicia grew up with a front-raw view of the entertainment industry. Like any native Angelino, she was raised knowing the correct reaction to the sight of any A-list celebrity is polite indifference, and because she grew up with the children of producers and working actors, she's comfortable interviewing them about their work and their vision. A passionate writer since childhood, Felicia earned her first professional bylines in college, serving as editor of three student publications and an intern for several newspapers and magazines, some with international reach. She began her writing career as a corporate technical and promotional writer before earning a doctorate in linguistics. Even while pursuing her academic career, Felicia continued to write about food, lifestyle, and entertainment for a number of commercial publications, including the Los Angeles Times magazine and Salon.com., along with a number of local and regional publications.


Felicia holds a BA with honors and an MA in English from Stanford University, a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Cordon Bleu certificate in pastry and baking (with honors) from the California School of Culinary Arts.
