Hey! I’m Ludi, I’m a writer, editor, and storyteller.

I love crafting stories that connect people—and I have a decade of diverse, global experience doing so.



In the past, I was the Director of Content at Supermaker, a media startup for makers and creators where I helped to increase traffic by over 500% in nine months. Before that, I was a staff writer at Refinery29 where I created and wrote some of the most popular series in our vertical, Work & Money. 

I was also previously Deputy Editor at Everyday Feminism, and wrote “The Path” at Lattice, a monthly column exploring the twists and turns of professional journeys. I have also worked as a copywriter for brands like SoFi as well as a number of independent clients. As a freelance writer, I’ve contributed countless essays and reported articles to outlets like Glamour, Slate, Wired, Allure, Vice, and more.

“Ludi’s a hardworking, multi-talented writer and reporter. She's also hyper-organized, creative, and has her finger on the pulse when it comes to news and cultural issues. She treats her sources and colleagues with professionalism and respect. She's also an amazing illustrator to boot!”

— Bourree Lam (my editor at Refinery29)

“Ludi is an exceptional, multi-talented creative and a dream to work with. She has an original and powerful voice and will continue to be someone I turn to for bold, intelligent and gorgeously crafted content.”

— Piper Weiss (my editor at Levo League)

It's rare that you come across a multi-talented and hardworking employee like Ludi. I was impressed with the unparalleled creativity [she] brings to every project. That type of high-level creativity takes years to develop, but comes naturally to Ludi. Any company or organization would be lucky to have [her].”

— Michelle Zenarosa (my Managing Editor at Everyday Feminism)

“Ludi came recommended by a former editor, and I was beyond impressed with her gorgeous and varied illustration and writing portfolio. Ludi not only helped conceptualize The Path column for Lattice but also produces all the illustrations for the stories, giving it a distinct look from all the other content on our site. Ludi's also helped evolve the concept. Super pleased with her thoughtfulness, thoroughness, creativity, and reliability on this series. I'd fully recommend her and looking forward to doing more work with her in the future.”

— Annette Cardwell, (my commissioning editor at Lattice)

“Ludi is a gifted copywriter who is able to make difficult-to-understand concepts simple. I’d recommend her for any writing job, every single time.”
