idlewood zines

IDLEWOOD 'zine is done! some of the raddest ladies in Vancouver recently got together and made the 'zine they'd been talking about making for about two years.

A dilly of a pickle.

My most recent article for Color Magazine, entitled "We Are Not Style Icons," is featured on the cover of the newest issue.

Oh the crash of the waves…

Two women in the Bay Area recently put out an all-female surf film called Dear and Yonder. It premiered in an alley off Main St. behind Antisocial and I interviewed filmmaker Andria Lessler beforehand for SBC Surf's website.


Black and white and read all over

It was ambitious and different, and put together by a handful of young people whose 'office' was essentially Our Town cafe. I was lucky enough to write some news stories before the reality of paper publishing ended all the fun. …


Skateboarding and creative community on Main St.
