In 2011, numerous collaborators and I came together to release a series of 10 comics about little-known Oregon histories. Oregon Public Broadcasting hosted a Think Out Loud about the history comics project and the Portland Tribune published a very kind profile of the project.
You can order a box set of the comics online, find them at a bunch of local stores (like Powell’s City of Books and Floating World Comics), or pick up single issues from Multnomah County Library.

It’s high time to step back and figure out what’s working and what’s broken about the way we live and love. Sex From Scratch: Making Your Own Relationship Rules is a book of smart relationship advice from people who’ve spent their lives learning the ins-and-outs of queer, feminist, and nonmongamous relationships the hard way.
This book will come out in spring of 2014 with Microcosm Publishing. Read an interview with me about this book in the Yale Daily News and follow along with my book-writing process and interviews at my Sex From Scratch blog.

Good news! The book I edited for cartoonist Matt Bors received a great review in Publisher’s Weekly.
I’m proud of a comic artist Lucy Bellwood and I made for with a pair of female Guantanamo Bay veterans about their experiences in the military. The whole comic, originally published in Symbolia magazine, was recently accepted to be featured in the 2014 Open Engagement conference in New York is available for free on Narrative.ly.
I’ve written a couple big pieces recently. I received a reproductive reporting project grant from the Quixote Foundation to write about the grassroots revolution in teen sex-ed. The final piece, “The Empowerment Cure,” was jointly published by the Portland Mercury and Bitch.
