Who I am:

I’m a writer, editor, reporter and Internet enthusiast.

Mostly, I’m a girl with a lot of interests. I have a penchant for appropriate musical handclaps and a pretty no-nonsense policy against geographically named bands.

I studied at Northwestern University‘s Medill School of Journalism.

My life began in a hospital in Memphis, Tenn., but I grew up exclusively in the suburbs of Atlanta.

My mom says I’m a catch.

What I’m about:

img_2464My work has appeared in Make It BetterPasteAtlanta magazine, The A.V. Club/The Onion, Maura Magazine and San Francisco magazine. I also currently blog here (for work) and here (for other work).

I’m interested in the intersection of psychology, technology and crime, and I’m always on the lookout for the opportunity to discuss the utter weirdness of being an American adolescent.

I’ve worked extensively in service and retail, in restaurants, coffee shops and the like, most recently as assistant manager, server and bartender at a charming Italian-French fusion cafe. As such, I possess an extensive knowledge of noodles and unwavering patience.

At current, I work in communications for a public policy “think-and-do” tank in North Carolina; I spend much of my free time with my longtime beau and goofy dog, Gravy (above left), and I host a weekly pub quiz at a local brewery.

I’m in the market for freelance opportunities. Give me a shout at cckeevan [at] gmail [dot] com.
