I'm an editor, writer, & sensitivity reader based in Philadelphia.

I've been a journalist since 2014. Most recently I was features director at SELF. Before that, I was a writer and editor at BuzzFeed Health. And before that, I did community organizing and policy advocacy around LGBTQ rights and reproductive justice. I'm the co-host of two podcasts: the mental health advice show The Struggle Bus, and Co-op Mood, a video game podcast. I have an MSW in community organizing and I'm passionate about tabletop RPGs, polyhedral dice, and the intersection of wellness and social justice.

Check out the services I offer here, and examples of my work here. But in the meantime, if you need an editor and/or sensitivity reader for your TTRPG material, health journalism, or anything else in my wheelhouse, I'd love to hear from you. Please email me at

Philadelphia, PA
