About

I'm a writer covering religion and spirituality, pop culture, and fashion (usually through a queer lens) for mainstream publications like Nylon, literary pubs like Narratively and The Rumpus, and the best of indie queer media like Autostraddle. I also do horoscopes for writers over at Electric Literature.

I am and forever will be ABD (All But Dissertation) at Brandeis University, where I studied women's political writing of the French Revolution and taught fairy tales, Disney, and all things pop culture to undergraduates. I dropped out after four years (and a Master's degree) to start Bluestockings Boutique, the first ever lingerie boutique geared to the LGBTQIA+ community. Undergrad is Cornell College - triple major in English, Politics, and Women's Studies (graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude).
