I am the Director of IMPACT, a Boston-based organization that works to prevent violence and abuse by giving people the tools to defend themselves against imminent violence and the bravery and skills to create cultural change by advocating for healthy relationships and sexual respect in their communities. I am just about finished with my first book, a memoir about 15 years of domestic violence and sexual assault work entitled Another Chance at Home. My writing has appeared in the anthologies Pinned Down by Pronouns and I Do/I Don't: Queers on Marriage, and is forthcoming in the December issue of J Journal.

What I'm Listening To: 

Show tunes

What I'm Watching: 

Project Runway despite my complete lack of interest in fashion. Tabitha's Salon Takeover despite my complete lack of interest in hair. Law and Order: Special Victims Unit because I like to pretend that police officers put that much time, money and energy into solving rape cases.

What I'm Reading: 

This Common Secret, memoir by reproductive health and abortion doctor Susan Wicklund
Diet for a Small Planet by Frances Moore Lippe
Farm City by Novella Carpenter
