Danielle Kraese

Danielle Kraese is a Senior Commerce Editor at BDG, where she edits and writes shopping content across sites like Bustle, Mic, Elite Daily, and Inverse. Before joining BDG in 2018, she worked at Penguin Random House, where she had her hand in all things ebook and app related.

Danielle also writes short humor and satire, and her writing has been published by The New Yorker, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Belladonna, Points in Case, Slackjaw, and Weekly Humorist.

Her newest book, Deep-sea Creeps: A Field Guide to Terrible Ex-boyfriends (As Sea Creatures), is out now from Smith Street Books. She is also a co-author of Jokes To Offend Men, which was inspired by the viral McSweeney’s piece “Jokes I’ve Told That My Male Colleagues Didn’t Like.” Vulture named it the #2 comedy book of the year, and New York Magazine classified it as “highbrow brilliant” in its Approval Matrix.

When not writing or editing, Danielle can be found petting other people’s dogs (with permission) and trying to keep all her plants alive (with varied results).
