Dana Hamilton writes (oftentimes humorous) essays inspired by her very weird life, most notably surrounding travel, sexual health, cannabis, dating, relationship advice, body image, and eating disorder recovery. She is a regular contributor to Playboy and her work has appeared in New York Magazine, Fodor's Travel, VICE, SELF, and Teen Vogue, among other publications.
After more than a decade of living in NYC, Dana left in October 2017 to drive (and date) across the country and back on her own for a little over a year, living in 9 US cities for 1-2 months each. She recently moved to put down roots in Los Angeles, CA.
Before becoming a freelance sex and travel writer, Dana was an editor at two "Big Five" houses in the book publishing industry. She has also written four books (under a pseudonym) for HarperCollins and is currently working on her next project. She holds a BA in writing and nutrition/food studies from New York University.
