Kate here. Let’s see, I was born and raised in the East Bay in California, and I now live in Virginia. I work in Digital Marketing, and have degrees in Political Science and Business Administration (Marketing concentration). However, none of that really tells you who I am.

I’m basically that Meredith Brooks song, ‘Bitch’, come to life. You know, ‘I’m a bitch, I’m a lover…’. Basically, I’m all kinds of things, and I’m passionate about all kinds of things. I also happen to be pretty loud and opinionated.

I’m just your run-of-the-mill feminist, socially conscious, lover of cheese and wine, pop culture aficionado, advocate for traveling the world, who supports equality and progress and literature and fashion and food. Pretty standard really.


 Hey friends. I’m Sarah. The one on the right in this photo. Obviously. The guy on the left is my husband Umur. He’s cool I guess.

So a little bit about me: I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, where I live today. I went to college at the University of Richmond, where I met Kate and my husband. I’m passionate about reading and writing. I play the guitar. I like to run and work out and spend time outside. My cats are my best friends and I have no shame about that. One day I will make them love me like I love them. Or they will kill me in my sleep. Verdict is still out on that one.

I am your classic over-thinker and can tend to live a bit too much in my own head. Writing helps me give my thoughts structure, direction and purpose. I like to write about things that I think are common experiences that people have trouble vocalizing. It’s pretty comforting to read something and say “hey, I guess I’m not the only one.”
