Who am I? And what have I done?

This is me

Like many others of my generation (lolz), I just want attention. Hear me, see me.  I love hearing myself talk and making others listen (or read or whatever). But no, really, listen, language and art spawned from the written word have profoundly changed my life. I can't imagine not writing? Especially as a way to deal with my "issues."

I have worked as a writer's assistant and a freelance copyeditor, but my longest stint was as a video producer and manager of the video team at TRT World. I have been published on Autostraddle, Público and Cuartopoder and contribute semi-regularly to Geek Girl Authority 

I'm queer. Turkish-American. They/them/their (less frequently she/her/hers).
