Hi there! I’m a freelance culture writer and editor based in Brooklyn, currently studying audio storytelling at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. My work has appeared in The New York Times, Vox, GQ, NYMag, Atlas Obscura, and more. Previously, I was the senior editor at The National, Amtrak’s travel and culture magazine, and before that, worked on the United Airlines magazines Hemispheres and Rhapsody.  You can reach me at lvespoli@gmail.com or on Twitter @L_Vespoli.
