Author, Editor, Big Fat Nerd

A picture of Angela Barian's face. She rests her head on her hand.

Born in Los Angeles but bred in Milwaukee, I live in Madison, Wisconsin with my husband. I am an author of non-fiction, fiction, and the occasional ad/promo piece.

While I have a PhD in Sociology from UW–Madison and was a professor for almost ten years, in 2018 I decided I wanted a change. So I walked away from my tenured position to follow my gut, start fresh, and learn new stuff.

I am now an editor with University Marketing at UW–Madison where I manage projects, write copy, and of course, edit.

My Swedish meatballs won an award once.
