Meet Cinnamon Janzer.

She's a freelance journalist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her work covers a broad range of topics from surfing Lake Superior and economic diversification in Appalachia to the ethics of development engineering in the market economy and how doctors perceive the pain associated with IUD insertion.

She is the former editor of Impact Design Hub and her words have been published in places like National Geographic, New York magazine, the Washington Post, Fast Company, Eater, and USA Today's Go Escape magazine as well as in academic journals like Design and Culture and more. She's a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the National Federation of Press Women, and the Adventure Travel Trade Association.

Cinnamon holds an MA in Social Design, with a specialization in intervention design, from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Fine Art from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

As a journalist, Cinnamon reports on travel, destinations, and the outdoors; food; health, wellness, and nutrition; social justice; and innovation for both print and digital outlets—all with a focus on lesser-told stories. She covers many of the same topics as a content writer for brands of all sizes. Across all of her work, she specializes in distilling scientific and academic research into accessible and engaging content.
