Rebecca Carroll

I am the Managing Editor at xoJane. Before that I was the Managing Editor at The Aesthete, and have held senior editorial positions at Artinfo, The Huffington Post and PAPER magazine. I am also the author of books (including Sugar in the Raw, and Saving the Race) and stuff and stuff and things, which have appeared in a broad array of publications, such as The New York Times, The New York Observer, GOOD, Ebony.com, and The Daily Beast. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, a college professor, marathon runner and former DJ who is slightly obsessed with sneaker laces, and our 8-year-old son, who has never met a sport he can’t learn to obsess over.
