Hi, thanks for visiting my site. I write long-form articles on pop culture, youth movements, and investigatory topics. Some of my articles are weighty, and some not at all.
I'm also the author of Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus
, a book that answers many of the questions about sexual consent in national debate.
I'm a contributing writer at The New York Times magazine and Vanity Fair. I've won a National Magazine Award, the magazine equivalent of a Pulitzer, in profile writing
. My cover story "Gawker and the Rise of the Creative Underclass,"
was a finalist for the feature writing award, and my profile of Arianna Huffington
was a finalist for The Mirror Award.
I am also a co-founder of Campside Media
, a podcast company devoted to narrative non-fiction storytelling.
I am in awe of the service performed by the HER Foundation
, which helps women with hyperemesis gravidarum, and Bone Cancer Research Trust U.K.
, working to solve rare cancers across the pond.
My writing has also been published in these books
as well as mentioned in these articles
