Professional Experience

Writer and video artist focusing on intersections between politics and pop culture. I have written articles ranging from an overview of Jean Grae's record label problems to instructions on cooking a vegan Thanksgiving feast with CSA vegetables (complete with original recipes), to an analysis of demonstrator Carlo Giuliani's death during the G8 meetings in Genoa; with a lot of ranting and raving about 90210 and Buffy thrown in. I also have worked as a videographer and editor for non-profits, musicians, market research firms and others creating short films for promotional and artistic purposes. These include documentaries, music videos, abstract pieces, and comedic shorts.

Writing Samples

Interview with Alina Simone, whose interpretive covers of Soviet cult legend Yanka Dyagileva's songs have helped preserve the memory and music of the last Russian punk poet -- and sparked debates about cultural ownership and authenticity.
Profile of $pread, a magazine "Illuminating the Sex Industry." In 2004, Rachel Aimee, Rebecca Lynn and Raven Strega hit upon a radical notion. The media sensationalizes sex work -- services such as prostitution, stripping, porn acting and modelling, phone sex, massage or other forms of erotic labor, whether legal or criminalized. But, in the process, it erases the experience of the actual sex workers unless they fit into a narrow, generally titillating or cautionary narrative. Shouldn't sex workers themselves be creating media?
