The most important thing to know about me right now is that I’m resting. So I can’t do your thing.

I write about eating, body image & diet-culture over at The Fuck It Diet, specifically for chronic dieters who want to stop fixating on food and body. I run online workshops and a podcast, and a big ol’ book is coming out in 2019.

I teach a lot of embodiment work – think yoga, but without the poses – or reiki, but not reiki. I trained in lots different kinds of energetic and emotional mind/body healing work, including being a certified yoga teacher.

I’ve spent a good chunk of my life performing professionally. I lived in New York for ten years, got my BFA in musical theater at NYU, and trained in improv comedy at Upright Citizens Brigade, performed one woman comedy and music stand-up shows, blah blah —

Now I live in Philly in a cute and miniature house with a leaky chimney. One day I’ll have a cute dog and a husband, but for now I only have plants that I can barely keep alive, and a neighbor who won’t let me grow vines on our shared trellis wall. (Come on, Rita.)

For the time being, all I want to do is drink coffee, write, watch TV, talk about TV, walk around, listen to music, and think about the idea of hiking.

Basically, I’m resting.

You can follow me on Twitter or Instagram for some anti-diet stuff + jokey bullshit.

This same week I found my old blogspot blog that I started back in junior year of college. It was called Non-Quick Oatmeal because I believed in slow food. This was back when I knew I loved to write and was also trying to legitimize my obsession with food. So… Read more

All the proof I need of god

April 9, 2017

When I was 9, we got our first printer and it never worked. It would make sounds and then — nothing. It turns out, we didn’t know how to set it up from within the computer settings. Only later did my uncle tell us the setting was set to “fax” and not “print”. But in the meanwhile I just felt like the tech gods were against me. Like I was technology-cursed. Everyone else could print… Read more
