Erin Monahan, Founder

Erin Monahan is the founder of Terra Incognita Media. Her haters know her as "angry, asshole, cuntsuckerfish." She likes that title better. 

While always a full-time neurotic nutcase for Terra Incognita Media, she has also worked as a nanny, gardener, server, outdoor teacher, and climbing gym instructor.

She received an English degree from the University of Missouri - Columbia, with an emphasis in creative writing and a minor in Philosophy.

Favorite things to do: read Audre Lorde, listen to Politically Reactive with Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu, use the phrase "men are trash," eat black olive hummus, drink lots of coffee, and cackle when white men get pissy in the comments section.
