I’m Yvie Rocks, and I’m a writer, comedian, and multimedia storyteller.
I’m thrilled to be the captain of my own ship now. But I’ve been a writer, editor, preditor (sorry), project manager, and Web producer for companies large (Comcast, The International Media Conglomerate Formerly Known As AOL, a certain Ivy League university) and small (Philadelphia Magazine, an infamous liberal filmmaker-blowhard’s production company).
I had a podcast once. (Who didn’t?) The letter F figures prominently in topics I like to write and think about most – film, fashion, finance, food, fights, and Philadelphia (just let me have this one), the city that invented the F word. I also brake for anything that melds urban life and the great outdoors and stories that rest at the intersection of work, jobs, and everyday life.
These days you can find me:
- Reveling in/recovering from the purchase of my first home
- Sobbing over a script that refuses to spring from my head to my hand, fully formed
- Becoming a warrior for voting rights and the USPS
- Spending a shocking amount of time frolicking outdoors, as far away from a glowing screen as I can get
