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 Deputy Editor of Future of Sex with other bylines in Sex For Every Body, Autostraddle, Curve Magazine, and elsewhere. Outside of work, you'll usually find me binging JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, doing puzzles with my partner, or trying a new gluten-free treat 🍰
