Hey there. Welcome.

I’m a writer and arts programmer working at the intersection of storytelling, education and community.

Stories are the way we organize the chaos of the world, and I’m always searching for new ways to help people become better chaos-organizers. I’m also interested in story as a tool in equity work.

When I’m not sharing the stories of others, I’m writing my own. I’m a playwright and a writer of short horror fiction.

My husband and I produce a queer politics and culture podcast called BEARDED FRUIT. Here’s our latest episode. If you dig it, you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and anywhere fine podcasts are subscribed to.

You can also check out back episodes (and maybe new episodes, I don’t know, we’ll see how I’m feeling) of my podcast BEARDED FRUIT. It’s very queer. It’s very political. It’s funny a lot of the time. Check it out this BEARDED FRUIT: STARTER PLAYLIST
