About

About me:

Semi-snarky, semi-sincere, occasionally ranting, always paying attention. Feminist who can work a skirt and crack a joke. Grammar nerd who is also fun at parties. Mid-career writer/editor with 15 years’ experience in newspapers & magazines who now helps developers at a major media corporation communicate with the suits who write the checks. I moved from Atlanta to New York in 2004, have lived in Brooklyn since 2009, and expect to stay awhile. Pro-women, pro-family, pro-choice, pro-workingclass, pro-entrepreneur, pro-farmer. Like every other bourgeois Brooklynite, I choose local/organic/raw food — mostly vegetables — whenever possible/reasonable/affordable but I’m not a smug asshole about it. What you eat is your business, but I’m happy to discuss food philosophy anytime, as long as the convo stays sane. Weird hobby: lindy hop. No pets, no kids, no thanks.

About the blog:

In short, this is a space where I can send my incredibly important opinions out to the world — on a platform that won’t immediately take ownership of and monetize my every thought (at least that’s the case for now, right WordPress?).

Favorite topics include women’s rights, the machinations of the radical right, LGBT equality, fashion history and the importance of personal style, clean food and health optimization, New York life, and hating on stupid bullshit. I plan to categorize and tag posts so visitors can choose topics of interest and skip the rest.

Everything here is public-facing, and I welcome all respectful dialogue. My skin’s pretty thick but I don’t feed trolls.

Thanks for reading!

  1. So many things were said here that lit my green light. Girl power, my gays, hating on stupid everything while being completely humorous and snarky about it. I look forward to reading!
