My writing seeks to explore identity—specifically within the Latin American diaspora—and its intersections with race, gender, sex, and tech.

I've been published in The New York Times' Women in the WorldComplexBroadlyWired, and more.

I am also the Associate Editor of Everyday Feminism, the largest independent feminist media site in the world with millions of monthly visitors from around the world.
