Hi. I’m a full-time freelance writer and casual VHS collector who lives in Brooklyn, NY and welcomes related inquiries via janetwburns[at]gmail.com.

I have contributed regularly to Forbes, mental_floss, and AlterNetand mostly write about culture, technology, media, and things that make me anxious or awed (or both), but hope to report on the rest of it, too, as time permits. I also host The Toke, a cannabis news, policy, and culture podcast.

For recent published work, please head to the “Portfolio” area, visit my far more frequently refitted Contently page, or drop a line.
