Writer & Photographer

Fruhlein is the former Features Editor at GRID and is currently based in New York. has a mole at the sole of her foot, hence the inability to stay still in once place. She keeps her sanity intact by meticulously planning out her next exit strategy, delusionally hoping to balance a career in photography, magazines, and academia. Will fly anywhere in a heartbeat to write and/or photograph.
