About Me

Hi there! I'm a queer writer and professor—I teach undergraduates the art of digital storytelling at The New School and I'm the Managing Editor of Scholar and Feminist Online, a rad academic publication produced by Barnard Center for Research on Women.

I've written a ton on the internet because I've spent half a decade as the Geekery Editor at Autostraddle.

You can also find my work at Argot Magazine, where I'm a columnist, The Rumpus and The Inquisitive Eater.

I am very, very deeply aware that this is a silly photo. My inability to make a human face in front of a camera is infamous, and I swear I am a better writer than I am a human-face-maker.


Things that I work on || Things that I have worked on

A monthly column where we discuss books relevant to living life during a Trump presidency.

This is literally the first edited collection on queer and feminist approaches to Afro-Asian studies

A personal essay about falling down, published at Argot Magazine.

A journal issue that seeks to document and analyze global queer activism that doesn't reproduce neo-colonial patterns of behavior.

I love talking to authors. Sometimes I do it for The Rumpus.

An academic look at the intersections of religious studies and queer studies.

A short story, published on The Inquisitive Eater.

Flash memoir published in the inaugural issue of Main Squeeze (paperback).

Everything from a column about technology, to liquor recipes, to relationship advice to personal essays—you name it, I cut my teeth on it here.

Surreal images, unreliable narrators and collaboration across cultures; my kinda book, my kinda author.

Sometimes I design or maintain websites for authors I like. This is one of them!

I have a deep interest for the intersection of masculinity and geekery.
