Performances & Appearances
May 7-8: Kalervo Sinervo and I are giving a paper together at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival/ CSSC Academic Conference at the Toronto Reference Library, entitled "Refrigerators, Hawkeye Initiatives, and the Ass-vengers: a recent history of gender representation in comics."
June 3-5: I'll be part of the "Let's Ruin Games" panel with Mia Consalvo, William Robinson, Carolyn Jong and Ida Toft at the Canadian Game Studies Association Conference in Ottawa. Also, I'll be demo'ing The Oldest Game, a newsgame about sex work laws in Canada that I have been writing for, along with Sandra Gabriele, one of my fantastic advisors and a team lead on the project.
June 18-20: Sandra Gabriele and I will be delivering a paper on The Oldest Game as part of a panel that also includes Maria Nengeh Mensah, Lisa Sloniowski and Bobby Noble at Console-ing Passions International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media and Feminism in Dublin, Ireland!
June 26-27: I am giving a paper at the Annual Game History Symposium at Montreal's Grande Bibliothèque. This year's theme is The History of Gender in Games, and my talk is called "Beating Keyboards into Swords: the Impact of #Gamergate Independent Game Creation."
mid-August: I'll be once again presenting at this year's unholy incarnation of the Grimposium heavy metal symposium at Concordia. The 2014 edition was incredible. Stay tuned for awesome details!
August 25: I'll be reading at the Art Bar Poetry Series in Toronto!
I'm presently writing a series of poems using the notes engine in the video game Bloodborne. You can find them on the Tumblr I have dedicated to the project, Fine or Foul. You might also stumble across them while you're wandering through Yharnam, good hunter.
I'm nearing the end of a draft my first novel, a piece of speculative fiction about a henchwoman. It also involves office politics, infrared photography and a profound misunderstanding of quantum mechanics.
I am currently working on/ always frustrated by a video game entitled Restless, about a ghost gradually becoming more adept at haunting her former home, which I began during the Dames Making Games 2013 summer incubator Junicorn.
I am also working on a new collection of poems that explores the metallurgical and alchemical properties of aggressive music, and a collection of polyamorous fairytales.
I am represented by Ron Eckel at the Cooke Agency.
