My name is Hanna, and I’m a writer.
Born and raised in Eugene, I currently live in a tiny apartment in Seattle with a sweet dog.
As a freelancer, my work has appeared places like Bitch Magazine, XOJane, the Huffington Post, McSweeney’s, LitReactor, Blisstree, the Seattle PI, and the Gloss. I’ve been interviewed for pieces by NPR, The Portland Mercury, Huffington Post Live, and World News with Diane Sawyer. One of my essays was recently featured in an anthology on beauty and the female body, The Better Bombshell.
In a previous life, I was the Editor in Chief of Gothamist’s now-defunct but forever-in-my-heart Seattle channel, Seattlest. Oh, and in college, I was a janitor and a cocktail waitress. Now, I mostly work for various news websites and even a radio station, which is pretty cool.
When I’m not stringing together words, I enjoy vinyl, bourbon, podcasting, making second-hand impulse purchases, ballet, and sitting in dark bars with friends.
