Featured journalist: Ashley Lee
For today's featured journalist, we are pleased to highlight Ashley Lee with The Hollywood Reporter! A contributing editor for THR.com, Lee covers entertainment, business and culture for both THR and Entrepreneur Magazine. Whether breaking exclusives on Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson One production, or interviewing David Cross at a crowded bar in NYC, Lee produces pieces that are well-written, thoroughly reported and entertaining to read. "And of course, I thoroughly enjoy exploiting my personal life for a good girly rant on various women's blogs," she adds.
Before pursuing a master's degree in magazine journalism at New York University, Lee studied communication and literature seaside at the University of California, San Diego while walking backwards as a campus tour guide, decorating dorm doors as a resident adviser, and yes, singing covers of pop songs in an a cappella group. As for her future goals, Lee had this to say: "I hope to continue covering stories on food, fashion, books and business, and the amazing, passionate people who pour their heart and soul into these projects."
