Other Writing and Media

If you’re interested in reading other pieces of mine that have been published elsewhere or where I’ve been featured in the media, check out the links! Please note that the audiences for these pieces varies greatly – those written for About-Face are geared towards a children, pre-teen and early adolescent audience; those written for The 2×2 Project are generally written for adults with an interest in public health and public policy, and those written for other select sites (Jezebel, Sociological Images, SparkSF) are geared towards a general adult audience with an interest in current cultural and political issues. Thanks for reading!
