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 Deputy Straddleverse Editor at Autostraddle and the Communications Coordinator at the Feminist Majority Foundation. She's formerly a PolicyMic writer and Managing Editor of THE LINE Campaign blog. Her writing has been featured or spotlighted online by Jezebel, Feministing, Bitch, and Elixher; she is also part of a forthcoming printed anthology about young feminism. In the past, she's also organized and blogged for the SPARK Movement.
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." She owns all of her opinions.
