My writing includes political op-eds, cultural analysis, and poetry, always with an eye to telling stories not sufficiently heard in society.
Here is a curated selection of my writing from over the years – if you are looking for my other work (for instance art, films, research and/or games) please head to my projects page or my research page!
Currently I am nominally on a publication hiatus for 2022-23 as I focus on my book proposal about participatory research, but if you have an interesting proposition you can always drop me a message.
