I’m a ginger (natural redhead/ auburn haired individual) who has often been told that I am “snarky,” “sarcastic,” and “sassy.” Thus, “GingerSass” was born.
I started regularly blogging in March 2011. My blog was started to cope with a socially awkward situation, and it has evolved into something more than a cure for social awkwardness. It has become a part of who I am.
I am a writer and high school English teacher in central New Jersey. My blog primarily concentrates on the intersection of my queer, writer, and educator identities, something that I find myself challenging on a regular basis.
GingerSass has given me a lot of unexpected opportunities. My writing has been featured through the NOH8 Project and BlogHer, and I have been lucky enough to have spoken at various speaking engagements and universities. I also regularly perform poetry throughout New Jersey.
I can be found on Twitter as @THEGingerSass.
