I'm a writer, storyteller, and video-maker based in Seattle whose work focuses on LGBT issues, geek culture, and anything that is strange and wonderful.

I'm the creator of the popular podcast The Sewers of Paris, of the long-running marriage equality show Marriage News Watch, and a cavalcade of fun videos on YouTube. I also served as Communications Manager for the American Foundation for Equal Rights as part of the team that restored marriage equality in California.

Defining Marriage - Book cover
Only a few years ago, marriage was defined as an exclusive club for heterosexuals only. Today, it has expanded to welcome gay and lesbian couples across the entire United States. Defining Marriage traces the decades-long evolution of marriage through the personal stories of those who lived through it.
