I am a freelance story editor for The New York Times Magazine and a contributing editor at Glamour, where I was formerly the features director. Mostly, I write investigative news stories and profiles. My article about a 26-year-old transsexual woman and her extraordinary support network was nominated by GLAAD for Outstanding Magazine Article in 2010.

I began my career in publishing in 1994, as an assistant to the late great literary agent, Connie Clausen. I then spent several years writing and editing for the book packagers Cader Books and Melcher Media. In 1997, I co-founded the Webby award winning Nerve, a magazine and dating site that Entertainment Weekly described as “Playboy's body with the New Yorker's brain.” I was also the editorial director of Seventeen.com and have edited and published several anthologies, including Sex and Sensibility: True Romances from the Lives of Single Women (Washington Square Press, 2005).

I live in (wait for it) Brooklyn, New York, with my husband, Ted McCann, a sculptor and contractor, and two sons, Finneus and Oliver.
