Jane Borden has been a professional journalist for almost a decade. She covers travel, spas, restaurants, museums, theater, books, and film. Her first book, I Totally Meant to Do That, is being published in 2011.
She’s written for The New York Times Magazine, NYTimes.com, Modern Bride, Metro, ESPN the Magazine, Time Out New York, and Maxim, among others. In addition, her creative work has appeared on Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central, VH1, and in two humorous-essay anthologies.
Borden received a B.A. in Religious Studies (the scholarly kind, not the theology kind) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. And she received improv-comedy training from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. You’d be surprised how much the two disciplines have in common.
Borden performs regularly in New York and at improv festivals around the world.
