my extended bio

My name is Caitlin Cruz. I was born in Arizona, raised in Nebraska and found my true home in Texas.

I'm an independent journalist who specializes in reported features about women, politics, culture, and power. I also do fact-checking and copy-editing for print and digital publications.

Previously, I was an editor and reporter for Fusion (RIP), a blogger for Talking Points Memo, and an investigative fellow at The Seattle Times. My writing has appeared in/on Jezebel, Digg, Racked, RollingStone.com, Glamour.com, REMEZCLA, PSMag.com, The New Orleans Times-Picayune, and The Arizona Republic, among others.

I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University with concurrent bachelor's and master's degrees in 2014.

I live in Dallas. And I would love to work with you.
