I’m a freelance writer, author, and editor from Washington, DC. I’m a contributing editor at xoJane, a contributing writer at The Fix, and I’m represented by Brandi Bowles at Foundry Literary + Media.

In January 2015, Sterling Publishing will publish two Q&A-style keepsake journals I wrote for the tween-age set: OMG and BFF. I’m the author of a pop-culture guide to the apocalypse called The End: 50 Apocalyptic Visions From Pop Culture That You Should Know About… Before It’s Too Late (Zest Books; 2012). I also edited Madonna & Me: Women Writers on the Queen of Pop (an anthology of essays about Madonna by women writers), which was published by Soft Skull Press in 2012.

I’ve written features, essays, profiles, and more for NYTimes.com, Salon, VanityFair.com, Cosmopolitan, Esquire.com, the Village Voice, ELLE.com, Refinery29, The Chicago Sun-Times, and more. Check out some of my favorite clips, and visit my Amazon author page here.
