I'm a writer, a feminist, a political junkie, a wine snob, a profligate potty mouth, a shit-starter and a truth-teller. I'm also a workaholic.

I am the Executive Editor of Raw Story. Previously, I served as an Associate Editor at Talking Points Memo, the editor of news and politics at Air America, an editor at Jezebel and an associate editor at Wonkette. My work still appears regularly in The Guardian's Comment is free. It has also been published by the Women's Media Center, Bust, Ms., RH Reality Check, On The Issues and Women's eNews.

Prior to becoming a journalist, I spent seven years in government relations in Washington, D.C.. I has a Bachelor's degree in German literature and Sociology from Boston University and a Masters of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University.
