West Indian Wordsmith • Pop Culture Critic • Full Metal Bitch Analyzing mass media from a feminist perspective.
As a freelance writer, my work is featured all over the web across a number of publications for diverse audiences with varied interests. Read some of my featured pieces.
What I write about
Feminist Movie Reviews
I'm an ardent fan of movies and I enjoy the challenge of framing films in a feminist media studies context. No movie is too silly or unimportant for an intersectional analysis.
Pop Culture Response Pieces
Remember when Miley twerked on the VMA stage? I write about current cultural conversations around race and gender, especially with respect to the representation of black women in the media.
Music Video Commentary
Contextualizing a music video is essential to music criticism. I write about the relationships between an artist, their music and their visual output and what that means for a culture that consumes it.
I love television and often write response pieces exploring the themes of programs I am watching for pleasure in order to contextualize them within the current sociopolitical climate.
These birds eye view pieces take a broader look at cultural trends. They are often borne out of stories in the current news cycle and provide a political take on pop culture.
