Engrid Barnett

Engrid is an award-winning travel writer and cultural geographer who’s long cultivated an obsession with cryptids, vintage tattoos, roadside attractions, and abandoned places. Her public descent into the weird began in 2017 after signing on with Ripley’s Believe It or Not! A longtime fan of Robert Ripley’s cartoons and quirky trivia, she relishes sorting fact from fiction and feeling mind boggled every step of the way. You can also catch her work in Wild West, Rova, Nevada Magazine, American Trails Magazine and more.
