I've been living and working on the Internet since 1999, first as a pseudonymous webcam girl, and now as a writer, publisher, artist, and activist.
I've written about sex and the Internet for Valleywag, $pread, Slate, and The Frisky. I've also written for Gawker, Jezebel, Gridskipper, BlackBook, Alternet, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian. My nonfiction and essays appear in Best Sex Writing (2008, Cleis Press), Dirty Girls (Seal Press), and Girl Crush (Cleis Press).
Over the last ten years, I've given numerous talks and lectures, at New York University, the New School for Social Reseach, the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, the International AIDS Conference, UC-Berkeley Labor Center, University of San Francisco, Hampshire College, and San Francisco State University. I've spoken on sex and technology at South by Southwest Interactive (SXSW), re:publica (Berlin), NeXT (Copenhagen), the Center for Sex and Culture, Sex 2.0, sex::tech, and BlogHer. I've performed at Eyebeam, the National Queer Arts Festival, and the Sex Worker Film and Arts Festival, and at the storytelling series In the Flesh, Sex Worker Literati, and the Red Umbrella Diaries.
As a consultant, I've worked with gender justice & sexuality rights activists who are using information and communications technology in their campaigns and organizations, to include the Open Society Foundations' Sexual Health and Rights Project, ISIS-INC (Internet Sex Information Service, Inc.), Tactical Tech Collective, THE LINE campaign, St. James Infirmary, and the Desiree Alliance. Currently, I serve as the Senior Communications Officer at Third Wave, a feminist, activist foundation, based in New York and supporting the work of youth activists for gender, racial, economic, and social justice across the United States.
