Carin DavisCarin Davis, an award-winning singles columnist and feature writer for The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, was first introduced to the plight of the single Jewish girl at age nine, when no one asked her to the B’nai Tikvah Purim Carnival. Brian asked Andrea, Evan asked Rachel, and poor Carin spent the night alone, trying to win a goldfish in a plastic bag. Over the years, she sharpened her social skills slow dancing at Bar Mitzvahs and flirting at AE Phi formals. In 2001, she began sharing her Of Mice and Mensch dating adventures with Jewish Journal readers. In addition to her work in The Journal, Carin’s feature and sports articles have appeared in Jewish newspapers across the country.

Carin graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude from UCLA, with a BA in Communication Studies. Before sundown, she works as the Vice-President of an animation company. In her free time, she hosts Iron Chef: Matzah parties, Torah and Tonic Shabbats, and volunteers with The Jewish Federation. She also volunteers for blind dates, serious relationships, casual relationships, friends with benefits, and girls’ nights out. So if you’re reading this and know a nice Jewish boy you want to set Carin up with, she is more than happy to meet your cousin Barry for drinks.
