Hi. I’m a full-time freelance writer and casual VHS collector that 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 technology, culture, and science (especially things that make me anxious, awed, or both) but hope to review and 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.
