I was born in New York City and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 2011 I co-founded the first-ever Pittsburgh Zine Fair, an annual event that brings together hundreds of people to share self-published work. In April 2013 I organized She Said Boom, a 3-day feminist zine-making symposium in Toronto featuring GB Jones and Caroline Azar of Fifth Column. I completed graduate school at the University of Toronto in Sociology and Equity Studies in Education and I am now living in Pittsburgh. I have a life-long commitment to ending social inequities through anti-racist and feminist pedagogy.
