Hey! I’m Kristen — a New York-based journalist covering culture & careers.

I've written about millennial morticians who blog about their jobs, a Brooklyn cult that pretends to run a bookstore, and the post-MTV gigs of "Real World" cast members. You know, the usual. 

You can find my recent stuff here. And some longer-form pieces here.

If you like large dogs and gratuitous application of sepia filters, you can also follow me on Instagram. Or drop me a line at: kristenleebahler(at)
