About

Howdy.

I’m Emily, and I write. 

I love finding the excitement in stuff that seems boring. I try to bring a fresh and compelling approach to the crowded world of online content: only write what’s true, new, and worth reading. I love a good pun, an ending with a twist, and occasional spoonerism. When I pick up a book, I always read the colophon. 

I’ve reported and written about a range of topics: politics in the NC General Assembly, medicine and the emergency department at UNC Hospitals, fine arts, retirement, food, travel, and last but certainly not least, SaaS.
