I'm a student at the UMass Boston in the Global Governance and Human Security PhD program with a research focus on sexualized and gender-based violence against the LGBTQ community in conflict-affected environments. My writing about LGBTQ politics, reproductive justice and feminist security studies has been published by Rolling Stone, RH Reality Check, Autostraddle, Bitch and DigBoston. I also volunteer with Planned Parenthood as an escort and am a board member of the Boston Doula Project.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss my work or to network about projects related to my research, writing and volunteer interests!
