Feminist Frequency
Managing Editor
Berkeley, CA
I spent four years as an editor at GameSpot, where my experiences as a publicly transgender woman in the games media gave me a unique perspective on the state of games culture. My review of Grand Theft Auto V for GameSpot, which touched on issues of misogyny in the game, caused quite an uproar, while also triggering discussions about what a game review should be and what purpose it should serve. I'm currently Managing Editor at Feminist Frequency, where I collaborate on the series Tropes vs. Women in Video Games and continue reviewing games from an unapologetically feminist perspective.
