About Us


Michael Hobbes is a reporter for HuffPost. He grew up in Seattle and attended a third-tier university and moved abroad as soon as he graduated because he thought that’s where boyfriends lived. He spent 11 years in Europe working in international development and telling the internet how he felt weird about it. In 2016 he moved back to Seattle because America is going great and maybe the boyfriends lived there now. He has a blog and a twitter and sometimes makes videos and audio short stories. He grew up with cats but doesn’t consider himself a cat person.

Here are some things he’s written that he feels good about:
