Meet Cinnamon Janzer.

She's a freelance journalist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota who writes broadly about culture, business, and travel. Her work covers a range of topics from surfing Lake Superior and economic diversification in Appalachia to the tenant's rights movement in Minneapolis and how doctors perceive the pain associated with IUD insertion.

The former editor of Impact Design Hub, her words have been published in places like National Geographic, New York magazine, the Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, Rewire.news, Fast Company, Eater Twin Cities, USA Today's Go Escape magazine, and more. She has also been published in the academic journal Design and Culture, the book Developing Citizen Designers, and the forthcoming Social Design Reader.

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. She is a member of the Authors Guild, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and the National Federation of Press Women.

When she's not typing away, you can find Cinnamon practicing her Spanish in Mexico City and surfing as often as she can, all with her dog, Gus, by her side.
