Hailing from the rough-and-tumble deserts of southern Arizona, where one doesn’t have to bother with such trivialities as “coats” or “daylight saving time,” Anna is a freelance writer and social media manager living in Oakland. She tends to put quotes around things unnecessarily and spends altogether too much time justifying the artistic merit of haiku. She has been the Arts and Culture Editor at SF Weekly, the Social Media and Communications Fellow at Mother Jones, and has written about everything from bars and restaurants to news to theater to sex toys, in addition to writing several different sex and relationship columns for The Chicago Tribune’s RedEye, AfterEllen, Centerstage Chicago, and Chicago Now. She also wrote a social media etiquette column for several years on SF Weekly, and her work has appeared in Mother Jones, AlterNet, The Bay Citizen, Salon, and The Rumpus. In addition, she has managed social media campaigns for best-selling authors (Peter Orner), non-profit organizations (Off the Mat), and for individuals and small businesses (Mysore SF). Plus, one time Amanda Palmer asked her out on Twitter, with Neil Gaiman’s blessing.
