Hi there! I'm Malia. I was born and raised in the heart of South Carolina and attended the University of South Carolina, where I edited the student magazine, Garnet & Black, before graduating and promptly transplanting to Brooklyn. I've worked as an editorial assistant and writer at Cosmopolitan, social media and web coordinator at Comedy Central (The Colbert Report, The Nightly Show, etc.), and I'm currently Social Media Editor at The Daily Beast. I specialize in social voice, writing, and editing, and spend a lot of time resisting the temptation to stick puns in copy.

In my free time, I take improv, run reasonable distances, lead women's workshops, contemplate dating, add Instagrams to #maliasmeals, and quote my parents on Facebook.
