Get to know me
Majority of the week, I'm a frontend engineer focused on accessibility, design, and documentation. Beyond that, I'm a freelance journalist and editor. I'm currently the Acting Editor of Future of Sex with other recent bylines in Autostraddle, Silicon Allee, Curve Magazine, and elsewhere. Outside of work, I still try to keep a regular skincare routine and find time to binge Terrace House.
