Caryn Brooks (just “Brooks” to many who know her...except for her family, because that would be weird) is a Portlander by way of Philadelphia and still has the attitude to prove it. Her career has spanned both journalism and politics. Her writing has been published in Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, New York Magazine, and many other financially unstable bastions of the fourth estate. These days she’s a civil servant with a stand up comedy habit as a member of the feminist killjoy comedy collective That's What She Said.
She is on the board of the Pride Foundation, an lgbtq community org that funds the movement in the Northwest.
Free time activities include playing softball, bicycle riding, driving around town in her Lezbaru, walking her rascally mutt Duchess, and wondering how she got to be such a stereotype.
