AboutImage of Olivia Rockeman

I am a writer and editor based in Brooklyn, New York.

My work documents how people and institutions respond to changing economic, environmental, and cultural trends. That includes stories about labor market inequality, millennials slipping behind their parents financially, teachers leaving the profession for good, and fashion brands’ environmental strategies failing to make money.

I’ve edited magazine features about major financial mistakes, ESG, and bankruptcy. You can find my journalism in Bloomberg, Vogue Business, The Wall Street Journal and more.

I also help brands with copywriting, newsletters, blog posts, SEO, and editing.

Currently, I'm pursuing an MFA in creative writing at The New School. I expect to graduate in 2026.

Prior to freelancing I spent five years at Bloomberg News reporting on retail, consumers, and the US economy. I’m originally from San Diego and studied economics at UC Davis before moving to New York.  

In my spare time, I teach yoga. You can find my schedule via Instagram here.
