I am a multiply disabled (autism, ADHD, mental health disabilities, likely Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome), queer, and non-binary person. I am a disability rights advocate and writer. Since 2014, I have volunteered, interned, and staffed at various disability rights organizations. My areas of work have included local activism, policy, communications, project management, and social media. My writing focuses on disability, its various intersections, and historical contexts for ableism. Pieces can be found in QDA: A Queer Disability Anthology, the Deaf Poets Society, the Establishment, NOS Magazine, and elsewhere. I also manage the website Psych Ward Reviews, which I launched in July 2016 to provide a centralized location for reviews of mental health facilities. I have been gradually expanding the site to include other content.
