Julia Specht is a writer and playwright living in New York City.
When she told her friends she would be contributing to BaDoink, and would be writing about sex, they just smiled and said, “Well, it was only a matter of time.”
She graduated from Wellesley College in 2013 with a B.A. in psychology and classics, so that explains a lot. Her plays have been produced throughout Boston and overseas (Precious Little Things, Ain’t That The Business, Promises, Allston Rat City).
Like a pilot fish latches to the belly of a shark, Julia has latched to the underbelly of tech companies and start-ups to feed herself by becoming a tech writer in her daily life – as a result, she is now well-versed on everything in Gartner’s hype cycle, you can test her.
She spends a lot of time thinking and wondering about gender politics, mental health, sexuality, semiotics, sketch comedy, and why anybody goes skiing because it’s obviously a death trap.
A Massachusetts native, she holds a deep love of Boston sports and WASP-y passive aggression, though she freely acknowledges that she only understands one of those things.
