I'm Palmer Haasch, an early-career entertainment & culture journalist. I primary work fandom, internet culture, and television beats and am always down to talk about the stupidest TikTok you saw while scrolling or the latest K-pop release. I have experience covering film, video games, LGBTQ issues, and emerging platforms. I'm based out of New York City and am currently seeking a full-time position!
In the past, I've worked as an editorial intern at Vox Media's Polygon, a Lead Junior Editor and entertainment media intern at GLAAD, and a columnist at The Minnesota Daily. I'm well-trained in sourcing out quick news hits in the world of entertainment, and have written reports on topics like Real Person Fanfiction in HBO's Euphoria and Lil Nas X's legendary Billboard chart run.
Education-wise, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Minnesota — Twin Cities with a B.A. in English and French Studies with a minor in Political Science. During my senior year, I conducted original research on the significance of Real Person Fanfiction in K-pop fan communities and received the Mark David Clawson Thesis Prize in English as a result.
Je parle couramment le français!
