Hi! I’m Emily, and I’m the main writer and EIC of Yankee Smartass. Thanks for visiting!

After growing up in Connecticut and going to school in Boston (that’s the Yankee part), I moved to Los Angeles where I’ve been working as a writer for the past 10 years. I’m engaged to the love of my life, David, and we have two dogs.

Over the years, I’ve been working more and more on my own personal projects, which often take a satirical or sassy tone (that’s where the Smartass comes in, a term my BF calls me affectionately, I promise).  After working on an old blog that was predominantly DIY and cooking base, I moved over to this new blog so I could also take on lifestyle topics, such as books, movies, music, TV and even politics.

I hope you enjoy!
