As a freelance writer, I have written for a variety of outlets, including WaypointPlayboy, Vice, The Mary Sue, The Toast, and more. I often write criticism about video games, as well as the intersections of video games, mental health, and feminism. I also write about lived experiences of mental illness and what I’ve learned through feminism.
