Hi! I’m Emily Krauser. I’m a born and raised Jersey girl now living in the decidedly not Jersey world of Southern California. I have a decade of entertainment journalism experience with specializations in pop culture, fashion, beauty, reality TV, and music. I am a storyteller, writer, social media strategist, and website editor; I currently post up as an Assignment Editor at ETonline. I also produce a monthly comedic storytelling show in L.A. about twenty- and thirtysomethings attempting to grow up called Stupid Smart Kids.
My personal essays and pop culture pieces have been featured in a number of publications, including XOJane, The Huffington Post, LA Confidential, Myspace, and AltPress. On my blog, I often muse about the oh-so-fun realities of dating in Los Angeles, road tripping, and being a young adult cancer survivor.
Most importantly, I love driving endlessly, coffee, palm trees, comedy & sarcasm. I liberally use Manic Panic, sharpies & ellipses… I am overly nostalgic for all things ’90s, especially if these things involve Doc Martens, smiley faces & Nickelodeon. I can quote Empire Records and Gilmore Girls in my sleep. I am not ashamed to admit that I still listen to emo/pop-punk music and go to Warped Tour, because I need something to defend besides New Jersey and poor dating choices.
But enough about me…
