How do I describe what I do? Well ... it's the Internet equivalent of making meaningful content shiny so you stop looking at cat GIFs, dog GIFs, and the correct way to pronounce “GIF." I'm passionate about feminism, LGTBQIA rights, racial issues, and animal cruelty, but really I'm into other important issues if they make me cry, applaud, or flail my arms like Kermit the Frog. Find me on Facebook or yelling about some TV show on Twitter.
