I'm a life-long New Yorker who writes about anime during the week and teaches ELA test prep and creative writing to 6th and 7th graders on weekends. I drink more tea than is strictly legal, and I've been listening to Issues by the Violent Femmes on repeat for the past year.
As a freelance writer, I’ve taken on a variety of topics, including nature, pop culture, history, modern society, creative writing, and more. Most of my work can be found at Ranker, but I have also written for other publications, such as Women.com.
Anime has been part of every stage of my life. Child me was pretending to be Sailor Moon and writing self-insert Pokémon fanfiction where I was Gary Oak’s girlfriend. Teenage me was cosplaying Chi from Chobits at Otakon and writing essays on the Sohma family for my AP Psychology class. College me stayed up all night moderating a Death Note fanfiction community on Livejournal. Grown-up me is a freelance writer with a specialty in anime.

I’m a regular contributor to the Anime Underground vertical at Ranker. My articles pull in 360k views per month, with one of my most popular articles clocking in at 1 million all-time views. Whether I’m ranking the best anime of the season or defending Sakura Haruno against haters, I’m always having a blast writing about anime!
Below are links to articles that either performed particularly well, or that I’m proud of. There are hundreds more where that came from, so check out my profile here.
I’ve also written for The Senpai Project, a New York City based event company that specializes in all things nerdy. I covered recent anime news, critiqued and analyzed shows, and talked about the culture that surrounds anime fandom.
