I’ve been skating ramps and bowls on my roller skates since 2014 and I played roller derby for an internationally competitive team between 2006 and 2013.

The story was adapted into a short film that appeared on the National Geographic’s Short Film Showcase and The Atlantic’s Editors’ Picks and went viral online.
In January 2020, I co-created a quarterly zine about ramp skating called Staple Gun with Julie Day and interviewed skaters from around the world, including:
Nov 2020: I wrote a cover story for Huck magazine on jam skater
Amir Bacchus-Marquis and his efforts to keep his community thriving through lockdown. Out soon.
