I've robbed the rainbow

Hi! I’m Michael Waters.

I’m a student at Pomona College and a freelance journalist who has contributed to The AtlanticGizmodo, The Outline, Slate, Atlas Obscura, and other publications. One time the New York Times cited me about our queen Carly Rae Jepsen.

Editorial internship experience:

  • Atlas Obscura, Brooklyn, NY (May 2017 – August 2017)
  • The Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles, CA (January 2018 – May 2018)
  • The Outline, Manhattan, NY (May 2018 – August 2018)
  • Washington Monthly, Washington, D.C. (June 2019 – August 2019)
  • Smithsonian Magazine, Washington, D.C. (June 2019 – August 2019)

My TV character holy trinity is Villanelle, Lucille Bluth, and Selina Meyer.
