Hi, I’m Christy Admiraal. I was born in Michigan and moved to New York a few years ago with my husband and our two cats. In addition to proofreading, writing, and editing for a Manhattan-based marketing agency, I write (and wrote) for some of my favorite places online, including Nerdist, VICE, and the late great Toast. I also host The California Diarists, a podcast about the weirdest and best Baby-Sitters Club spinoff.

The opinions expressed here — largely concerning pop culture and/or my life experiences with Billy Joel, comedy podcasts, and the setting of It Follows — are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of my employers.
