Who I Am: 

Writer, editor, tabletop game designer, journalist. Fascinated by everything spooky, weird and imaginative. Lifelong gamer, horror fan and feminist. I love exploring and photographing abandoned places—the spookier the better. Member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Online News Association. Over-caffeinated resident of the Pacific Northwest.

What I'm Listening To: 

Dr Who soundtracks, Jewish hip-hop, Ladino love songs, French pop music, Garbage, Poe, Florence + The Machine, Glitch Mob, Nancy Sinatra, Flogging Molly, Kaizers Orchestra, Kerli, and anything that sounds good at the time.

What I'm Watching: 

Haven, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report. All other shows are watched in intense, lengthy marathons. Almost caught up on Dr Who again. Maybe?

What I'm Reading: 

Every magazine I can get my hands on, books on journalism, speculative fiction books for reviews, history books for fun ("When They Come for Us, We'll Be Gone: The Epic Struggle to Save Soviet Jewry" is a personal favorite). I re-read Mira Grant's "Feed" a few times a year, graphic novels (favorites include Phonogram: Rue Britannia and Transmetropolitan), books on neurology and psychology, medical papers on asthma and immune research, role-playing games, backs of products, economics books.
