ABOUT DANNY McCARTHY

IMG_1735

I am a recent college graduate from Boston University (May 2017), where I received a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts in English. I’m currently working freelance as a copy editor for a content marketing company and a writer for a local magazine.

My interests include politics (particularly LGBTQ policy and healthcare), television (I’m an avid fan of reality television and will tell anyone I meet about it), and comedy (I’m highly unfunny but whatever).

I try to write from the intersection of those things (the corner of pop culture and politics) because I believe that things that seem complex (healthcare, politics, law) can be broken done into digestible, understandable and enjoyable content. I believe that you can be intelligent, well-informed and still have fun.

In addition to my work here, I’ve written for The Odyssey Online as a staff writer and the BU Buzz as a men’s fashion writer and the City Editor. I interned for Quintessentially Creative in London as an editorial assistant. I have also worked in customer service as a Guest Services associate at Boston University’s Agganis Arena and as a camp counselor.

The title of my blog, The Wunderkindof, is a play off the German term “wunderkind,” which essentially translates to someone who has achieved a lot of success at a very young age. The Wunderkindof, in comparison, is someone who is failing upwards at everything; the classic millennial, they are trying to figure things out without sacrificing their humor, their desire to learn and their own deep delusions of grandeur.
