Hello! I'm a writer, editor, and crafter living in New York. I'm currently a senior editor at Racked and worked at BuzzFeed for a while before that. My work has appeared in The New York Times, NPR, Brooklyn Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Vogue Knitting, The Hairpin, The Billfold, and other places; I've also done segments for The Today Show, Good Morning America, and a whole bunch of local and national television and radio shows. My first book, The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater, was recently published by Flatiron Books.

(Also: I run a sporadic reading series with one pal, a newsletter about cravings with another, and I've taught classes on essay writing.)
