Carrie is the creator of The Flying Flamingo Sisters series, available now on Audible, and author of Horse Girl, her forthcoming novel for Penguin Random House. She's served as a staff writer for several Nickelodeon comedy variety shows, while her essays on awkwardness are featured in the book Mortified: Life is a Battlefield. As a journalist and essayist, she has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, Cosmopolitan, The New York Post, McSweeney's, Architectural Digest, Condé Nast Traveler and NPR's UnFictional.
An alum of Northwestern University and The Groundlings comedy theatre, Carrie has appeared Inside Amy Schumer. Dang it, *on* Inside Amy Schumer. You can hear her voice in several audio books, animated series and commercials (where she's played everything from an evil robot to a sassy pickle). She has also appeared on E! TV, the Today Show and performed her own sketch show, Midwestern Wisdom, at the Comedy Central Stage. Her original animated web series Bad Moms in Movie History was featured on HGTV's uLive.
Carrie grew up on the windswept plains of Nebraska and has been lucky enough to circle the globe since then — from the tropical jungles of Papua New Guinea to the windswept deserts of Arabia. Some of her first jobs were with National Geographic Television and the Sundance Film Institute's international writing program, which took her around the world. She now lives between New York and Los Angeles (but always keeps a passport handy).
