[Writer, Editor, Social Media Maven & Media Scholar with an affinity for red lipstick located in the Los Angeles area]

Currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with the Media Studies Option from CSUDH with a May 2019 graduation. At the moment I'm staying busy as a staff writer and editor for Blacknerdproblems.com

(Nerdy Fun facts: I once Interviewed writer and nerd G. Willow Wilson and sat on a panel titled "Adaptation, Influence & Appropriation: Using Other Cultures to Build Fictional Worlds" at Geek Girl Con in Uhura Cosplay)

Here are a few of my more recent twitter threads: This one is on the lack of teaching about narrative women filmmakers, retweeted by filmmaker Alma Har'el.

This thread here is about Black pain, Black trauma & Black women serving as matriarchs of family units, my first thread after Twitter introduced the 280 character update.

This thread is a love letter to Aja Kong: one of my favorite professional wrestlers and a legit biracial badass with an inspirational story.

This last thread sits at the intersection of humor and educating: A thread of memes I made featuring Storm of the X-Men and responses to street harassment, the last memes were inspired by the Stop Telling Women To Smile art project created by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh. [Updated Thread]
