I am a journalist and author. I’ve written for lots of places like the New York Times, Washington Post, and the Columbia Journalism Review. I write about politics, culture, feminism, food, and whatever I want. I’ve been yelled at by Tucker Carlson and one time Alan Dershowitz called me “fifth rate.” I have two cats, two kids, and lots of opinions. I’m happy to call Cedar Rapids my home.
