HI! I'm Alex Portée, and I live in Los Angeles, where I'm a senior trending reporter for TODAY.com at NBC News. You can check out all of my work on the site here.
I love writing about the things I think too much about, movies, great TV shows, Black culture, and identity. I think Barbra Streisand says the most clever things. Top Hat is my favorite thing to watch when I'm feeling under the weather, and I've written for Netflix Queue, Vogue, Teen Vogue, New York Magazine, Food52, have bylines on NBCNews.com, and more.
