My writing can be found in lots of weird little corners of the Internet, but my professional work is limited to a handful of publications. Below are some of my more notable pieces, and my goal is to add many more in the future. If you’d like to contact me about writing for you or your publication, please email me. You can also contact me for access to my original fiction and fanfiction, if you’re interested!
[Note: As of March 2014, some of these links are unavailable. I will be uploading PDF scans of the pieces to make them accessible once more. When that happens, this note will disappear. Sorry for the inconvenience!]
Take Out Zine (October 2013 – Present)
As an occasional contributor to Take Out Zine, I write about my experiences working in customer service, post-grad, as well as some other topics that strike my fancy from time to time. The zine is run by one of my oldest friends, one of the most brilliant people I know, and I’m lucky to participate in the project.
- I never planned to work in retail (October 2013)
Velociriot (July 2012 – Present)
As co-founder, editor and contributing writer at Velociriot, a culture and media analysis blog, my job is to produce two to three pieces each week (ranging from serious to whimsical), edit other contributors’ pieces, and help manage social media and promotion of the site.
- Harassment is not journalism: Grantland‘s ethical failing (January 2014, co-written with AR)
- How much space do I deserve to occupy? (September 2013)
- Hey, “Teen Wolf”! Abusing the abused does not a plotline make (September 2013, co-written with Mel)
- Irrelevant guy has irrelevant opinion on relevancy of teen girls (August 2013)
Hippo Press (May 2012 – September 2012)
On the staff of the Seacoast Hippo, I produced two to three pieces each week covering food and nightlife in the Seacoast of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts — stretching from Kennebunkport, Maine to Newburyport, Mass. For a brief time, I also produced listings and articles for The Hippo.
- Margaret Cho is not a mother (The Hippo, Sept. 2012)
Hipolitics (May 2012 – August 2012)
As a columnist for Hipolitics, I produced short cultural and political commentary pieces each week that were then selected from a pool of submissions by other columnists for potential publication to the site. Topics ranged each week and were chosen by columnists.*
- *Hipolitics has since ceased to exist, and my clips are no longer accessible.
The Wire (January 2012 – May 2012)
Part of the requirements to graduate with a degree in journalism from the University of New Hampshire was a full-semester internship at a newspaper. I chose to do my internship at The Wire, a weekly news and culture paper based in Portsmouth, NH. I produced two to three pieces each week on a variety of topics, chosen mainly by my editors.
The New Hampshire (October 2009 – April 2012)
During my time at the University of New Hampshire, I put a considerable amount of effort into my work for the school’s student-run newspaper, The New Hampshire. I interviewed celebrities, covered concerts, wrote about issues impacting the student body, and served as Arts Editor for a full year. Much of what I’ve learned in my field came from my experiences at TNH and I’m proud of almost all of the pieces I produced for it.
- It’s not easy walking a mile on One Day Without Shoes (April 2010)
- Ten minutes with Matthew Gray Gubler (April 2011)
- TOMS: from shoe stores to book stores (Sept. 2011)
