My name is Hanna, and I’m a writer (among other things).
Born and raised in Eugene, I currently live in a tiny apartment in Seattle with my little dog.
My work has appeared places like McSweeney’s, XOJane, the Huffington Post, the Good Men Project, The Frisky, LitReactor, KOMO News, KUOW, the Seattle PI, Blisstree, Bitch Magazine, and the Gloss.
I’ve been interviewed for pieces by NPR, World News with Diane Sawyer, The Portland Mercury, and Huffington Post Live. One of my essays is featured in an anthology on beauty and the female body, The Better Bombshell.
I’m also a co-founding editor of Seattlish, a website about Seattle. In a previous life, I was the Editor in Chief of Seattlest, Gothamist’s now-defunct but forever-in-my-heart Seattle channel. I also worked in advertising for a while. Oh, and in college, I was a janitor and a cocktail waitress.
Now, I work as an arts and entertainment reporter, on-air personality, and social media director for a local radio station, which is pretty cool. You can sometimes hear me very, very early in the morning.
When I’m not stringing together words, I enjoy music on vinyl, bourbon, college football, making impulse purchases at second-hand stores, ballet, and sitting in dark bars with friends.
