Becky Ohlsen is a freelance writer and critic living in Portland, Oregon. She writes travel guidebooks for Lonely Planet, mainly about Sweden and the Pacific Northwest, and reviews movies, books, food and miscellany for anyone who’ll let her. Favorite films include Brotherhood of the Wolf, The Way of the Gun, and everything by Wong Kar Wai except My Blueberry Nights (obviously). Pet peeves include artificial sweetener and the use of “ur” to indicate “you’re” or “your.” Becky earned a master’s degree through NYU’s Cultural Reporting and Criticism program shortly after the death of journalism and is now working on a book about motorcycles and the appeal of risk.
