I’m just me. I’m a long time gamer, fangirl, fan-ficcer and spawn point of the #INeedDiverseGames hashtag on twitter. I’m the founder and Director of the I Need Diverse Games non-profit organization, which gained 501(c)(3) status on August 13th 2016.
The work of I Need Diverse Games is now my full time gig, and because of support on Patreon, I’m able to do this without having to hold down a 9-5, well mostly. I’m still not at my ideal goal of $1,750 a month which would cover rent and bills with a tiny bit left over.
If you’re not up to a monthly commitment, but want to give a tip, I’ve got a PayPal.Me where you can send funds: paypal.me/cypheroftyr or buy me a Kofi if you like what I have to say on line, in person, on convention panels or want to see more of my writing. If you like what I do, want to do and want to see more of it, you could support me on Patreon for as little as $1 a month.
I do a lot of other things as well, listed below in a handy bullet point list:
- Manage the I Need Diverse Games community on tumblr, twitter, Facebook, Imzy, and a new publication style blog for the community.
- I’m available for e-seminars over at GenieCast. I’ve got two programs up, one on podcasting and another on diversifying your organization.
- Diversity Liaison for GaymerX, effective as of #GX3! Check out the announcement post on GaymerX Blog!
- Editor in Charge of Fresh Out of Tokens with David L. Reeves [on twitter he’s @RedConversation] You can listen on iTunes, Stitcher or via the RSS feed.
- Co-Host of the Chromatic Life podcast with Matt Lancaster (@Lanksalot81) and Javier Payano. (@JavierPayano)
I enjoy talking, reading and writing about gaming diversity, feminism, race & racism, fandom as a way of life and many other topics. If you too like those topics, I’m always happy to be on your podcast, write up an article or appear on a panel, especially for pay.
I’ve had a lot of bad shit happen to me. Sometimes I will post about it, other times I may just vent. Remember, my blog, my rules. If you want to follow me on social media you can do so on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Tumblr; my Facebook is locked to folks I have known for a while. I stream often on Twitch and upload the videos to YouTube.
You’ve been given fair warning. If you can behave like an adult pull up a chair and hangout. Otherwise, find the nearest exit and have a good day.
