Nice to meet you! I’m a writer based in New York.
What do you get when you cross an NYU English major with a pop-culture geek? Following a passion for film, social justice, and technology writing, I became an associate editor for The Mary Sue in 2015 and then an assistant editor in 2017.
I’ve also written about movies for Bitch Flicks and Film Inquiry, news at LGBTQ Nation, and virtual reality at GearBrain. I also occasionally talk about travel and culture at Roads & Kingdoms and On She Goes.
I bring snark, thoughtful analysis, and puns to the table (along with healthy does of existential dread). My co-workers are also fans of the way I carry snacks everywhere like an old lady. You can find me over on Twitter @charlinejao or shoot me an email over at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re feeling especially generous, you can buy me a coffee and I’ll shoot you a nice thank you message. Thanks for stopping by!
