I'm a freelance writer and Down East Magazine contributing editor based in Camden, Maine.

For nearly a decade I was on the editorial staff at Newsweek Magazine and The Daily Beast, where I was a staff writer covering gender, culture, and social justice. I have a B.A. in English from Barnard College and an M.S. in Magazine Journalism from the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University.
