Based out of Arlington, VA, Jordan Rizzieri is a freelance writer, editor, and podcaster specializing in creative non-fiction and passionate wrestling critiques.
J, as she prefers to be called, currently spends her days writing personal stories that blend her own brand of magic and memory. She also serves as Editor-In-Chief of The Rain, Party, & Disaster Society online literary magazine. In 2015, she left a position providing editorial services as an intern at The Carol Mann Agency to head to the US capitol for a new adventure. Her move also marked the end of her run as her mother's caregiver, as well as the end her Alzheimer's Disease Caregiver blog about what it's like to head the care team for her Mom. In the evenings, J can be found dropping pro wrestling performance knowledge on Twitter as The Lady J, host of the Lucha Underground review podcast The Facelock Feministas. When the weekends roll around, she plugs in her I.V. of high-test coffee, consults the tarot cards, and practices her dance moves in hopes of one day being a Robert Palmer Girl (she knows he's dead, okay?)
