I’m a writer focused on feminism, politics, philanthropy, and culture. I’ve reported and written pieces for The Nation, Salon, Alternet, AOL, Heeb, Jewcy, and Campus Progress. My February 3, 2012 piece for The Nation, Why the Komen/Planned Parenthood Split-While It Lasted-Was Good for Feminism, was among the most widely-read and shared articles of that week, with nearly 2,000 known Facebook shares and if you’re reading this, you may well have been one of those people, so thank you!
Alongside my journalism career, I have five years of experience as a fundraising consultant, campaign director, and political organizer. I’ve also done extensive copywriting for fundraising and marketing purposes.
Additionally, creating Hey Girl Happy Hannukah (the Jewish-holiday-themed Ryan Gosling photoblog) is among my proudest accomplishments to date.

"Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out."

Anarchy Dance Theatre
Taiwanese dance group perform in specially designed interactive projected space created by UltraCombo to great effect - video below:
The collaboration project between Anarchy Dance Theatre and Ultra Combos focused on building up a new viewer centered performance venue. In this space all movements including the dancers’ and audience’s can be detected and interact with each other through visual effect. The audience is not merely watching the show but actively participating in it.
More about the group and their project can be found here
