Team Rebel Love
Owner & Founder
Talia is the owner and founder of Rebel Love, a blog that was conceptualized during a difficult period of her life, that hopes to turn pain into something positive by fostering discovery and connections. She realized she wasn’t the only one who had a hard time processing pain and letting go of the past, so after a particularly trying year, Rebel Love was conceived as a medium for discourse and healing. It took 3 years to actualize this dream: of a place to share and to discover. Rebel Love is a place to challenge the common ideologies surrounding life and relationships, a place where we strive to create the best versions of ourselves, celebrate love and enjoy life's offerings.
Talia has traveled the world, working from her laptop for the past 3 years. She loves laughing, being around her friends, playing music, really good food, and love.

Talia and I fell into conversation as coworkers at an oyster bar and discussed the merits and functions of a blog. Tal was in a heavy ruminative phase about relationships and she had begun to imagine a digital forum for discussion on the matters that occupy us every day, but go undiscussed or misunderstood. We’ve developed a partnership that enriches us both, where I get to use my ear to help crystallize the pulse of her ambition.
My educational background is in English Lit., but I credit most of my ability as an editor to a keenness for reading that’s consumed my life over the past 5 years. I like to read poetry, fiction, and philosophy, and digest or undertake anything germane to that field of art. Most importantly, I like what regards writing as entangled with reading thinking and living – writing as cosmology, language as love and logos.
When editing for RL, I try to sharpen the contributor’s expression, usually by trimming excess and fiddling with awkward syntax. I insist that moralizing doesn’t stifle the individuality of the story told – so my respect is given as much to the piece as to its author.
