Abby Carney

Nomadic by nature, Abby has called many cities home, and is enraptured by new places, people and experiences. Abigail means "Father's joy," so it makes sense that spreading joy and sharing stories are what gives her life purpose. Her work has appeared in Business Insider, The Billfold, xoJane, Thought Catalog, Daily Candy, The Toast, among others.

To support her journalism career, she has danced on the side of the road as a human directional sign, served smoothies, and even had a stint as a purveyor of fine denim. She is currently living in Austin and working on a memoir based on the lives of her grandparents, while also working on freelance endeavors and exploring her new city.
