Emily Hingle is a native southern Louisianan, and she doesn’t think that she’ll ever leave her ancestral home. She graduated from the University of New Orleans in 2010 with a B.A. in Film, Theater, and Communication Arts, but had already shown interest in the field of writing. She was briefly enrolled in UNO’s graduate school for Professional Writing, but decided that a new car would be better suited to pursuing a career in journalism at that moment. She began freelance writing for entertainment magazines in the New Orleans area as well as international music websites and established herself as a tastemaker for music, cuisine, art, literature, and cultural activities. She remains a freelance writer for New Orleans-area and national brands, and you can often find her attending restaurant openings, going to concerts, catching the latest Broadway shows, and seeking out the best new brews in town.
