Carmen splits her time disparately between feminist rabble-rousing, writing, public speaking, and flower-picking.
Currently located in DC via NJ and forever dreaming of Los Angeles, she can most often be found watching Frasier on Netflix, freestyle rapping, processing the most trivial moments of her life on Tumblr, and/or tweeting at Drake. A professional feminist by day and overemotional writer by night, Carmen is currently the Straddleverse and Feminism Editor at Autostraddle, a Contributing Writer at Everyday Feminism, and the Communications Coordinator at the Feminist Majority Foundation. In her past lives, she was a writer with Mic, a SPARK Movement blogger, and two-time Managing Editor of THE LINE Campaign blog. Her writing has been featured or spotlighted online by Jezebel, Feministing, Bitch, and Elixher.
Carmen is mother to the most adorable dog on Earth and hates paying more than one dollar for a good slice of pizza. At times, she self-identifies as "the baddest bitch."
