I have experience doing editorial work for academic and popular publications.
Academic Editorial Experience
I have been invited to serve as a peer reviewer and editorial board member for four academic journals:
- New Review of Film and Television Studies
- Game Studies: The International Journal of Computer Game Research

Non-Academic Editorial Experience
I spent four years as a Contributing Editor and Writer for Autostraddle.com, which is "world’s most popular lesbian website, with over one million unique visitors and 3.5 million views per month." It is a trans- and non-binary-friendly website and the 2015 GLAAD Award Winner for Outstanding Website.
As a contributing editor and writer, I regularly wrote editorials, interviews, personal essays, and think-pieces for Autostraddle and participated in editorial and staff writer meetings and with the senior editors.
