Who the (bleep) is Gretchen Ash?

Hello! I’m Gretchen, a writer and editor based in Los Angeles. Welcome to my digital playground. Take a look around and let me know what you think.

As a storyteller, I have a myriad of passions. I dig sociology and cultural anthropology. I’m fascinated by human nature: what we do, why we do it, and how those actions and motivations shape the world around us. I’m passionate about our mythology—the stories we tell to help us understand ourselves and our world, from ancient oral and religious traditions to modern film, television and digital media.

I’m also deeply, irrepressibly geeky. I love science and technology. In the same way that I’m enthralled by the ways we as humans have shaped our past, I’m eager to see how we will shape our future.

This site is a place to explore these passions through art and discussion. It’s also a space to show off work I’ve done with others, and to let you know what I’m up to. I’m currently available for freelance projects, so get in touch here or find me on social media—I’d love to hear from you!
