Devon Delfino | Brooklyn-based freelance writer, blogger and editorHi! I’m Devon (pronounced Devin), an independent journalist writing about culture, identity, and money from my homebase in northern California.

My work has been featured in publications such as the L.A. Times, Teen Vogue, the Establishment, Mashable, Business Insider, MarketWatch, CNBC and USA Today, among others.

I graduated from Boston University with a journalism degree (magazine track) in 2015. After that, I was handpicked to participate in NerdWallet’s service-journalism program. I ended up working at the company for almost two years, first in the higher-education and student-loan beat and later as a general personal-finance reporter.

Now that I’m a full-time freelancer, my curiosity has taken me to different beats. But my passion still lies in covering the hidden or silenced spaces which pulse below the surface. That is, I like to write about the ways cultural constructs (all the -isms, “common practices” and traditions) inform daily life and the impact those have on real people’s lives.

When I’m not writing, I can usually be found playing with my dog, planning my next solo-hiking adventure, re-reading a book I’ve owned for years (instead of the one I just picked up), or anxiously binge-watching the Handmaid’s Tale.

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or proposals you may have. And check out my profile on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter for real-time updates on my work as well as general musings on my life as a freelancer.
