Jamie Varon is an entrepreneur, writer, author, and web designer who generated buzz in the Twitter community in 2009 with her website called Twitter Should Hire Me, where she blogged candidly about her attempts to get a job at Twitter. The site got a ton of attention, which ultimately led her to create the high-end boutique web design company, Shatterboxx Media, which offers a wide range of branding, design, and development options for the choosiest and gutsiest clients on the web. She has also written for her personal blog, first under the site A Life in Translation, then transitioning to JamieVaron.com. Jamie currently works at Thought Catalog as the West Coast Producer, where she also writes content almost daily, and has released two eBooks: her essay collection, Capital T Truth, and the memoir, The One-Way Ticket: What European Men Taught Me About Love, Sex & Romance.
