I’m an independent journalist, sensitivity reader, and writing teacher. I write about food, sex, art, and mental health—all ways for me to explore how politics and power shape our experiences of community and care.
I’m currently a content writer producing features for MHz Curationist, a creative commons art history platform. I was previously a contributing writer at Atlas Obscura. My work appears consistently at Dame, and has also been published at The Washington Post, The BBC, Teen Vogue, Time, Bitch, and in a weekly column at Feministing.
My work on gender and sexuality has been cited and anthologized in multiple popular and scholarly outlets, including New York, Mic, Bustle, the Duke Law Journal and several books on consent, feminism, and sexual violence.
I was a 2015-2016 Fulbright fellow in women’s studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, where I completed my master’s in Indian cinema, theater, and visual studies in 2018. My research on Hindi cinema and popular erotica has been published in Critical Collective. I received a BA in 2015 from Harvard University.
