I’m a bigender, Toronto-based film critic and video artist, and I’m writing both novels and scripts. My work explores queer and marginalized identities, pop culture as a canary in our social coal mine, and (inevitably) the gender euphoria of tween girl superheroes.

In 2020, when we were all stuck indoors, I published a book of essays about trauma and survival narratives in George Miller’s 2015 film, Mad Max: Fury Road. Witness it here.

Action figures on my desk right now include: all three of The Marvels; Catra from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power; and Eleven from Stranger Things. Ask me about anything in the IP space and I bet you I’ll have something to say.

[An] insightful study of the ‘survival’ narrative. Ingenious layout… a perfect cinema object.

A cuddly Mogwai kind of insanity you can put in your pocket and take home.
