Until recently, I was the Managing Editor at Jezebel, where I worked as an editor and writer for 7 years. I’ve also contributed to Broadly, Deadspin, Pendulous Breasts Quarterly (a humor zine curated by former Onion editors), and more. I am passionate about civil rights and feminism. I like writing jokes and occasionally make stupid (as in “stupid good”) videos. If you are looking for a woman who sounds a little bit like a man (again, in a good way), I also do occasional voice work
