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 and Feminism Editor at Autostraddle and the Communications Coordinator at the Feminist Majority Foundation. She's a former PolicyMic writer and SPARK Movement blogger and has served twice as 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."
