When did you start making zines ... and why?

I started making zines and mini comics 2 years ago because it's fun!

Why do you think independent publishing is important?

There are so many voices out there that are not commercial but still need to be heard. Independent publishing gives a platform to the little guy, the oddball, the disenfranchised.

What does the future of zines and independent publishing look like to you?

I would hope that people keep making and publishing their own zines and that it becomes more popular with a wider range of people. I would also like to see more small publishers who can give a voice to a broader range of content.

What was your first zine called? What was it about?

This is Not a Girl Gang. It's a mini comic about a couple of best friends who go on a road trip to the Grand Canyon in March not realizing that the altitude makes it freezing!

What is your favorite part of making zines?

Sharing a part of myself and seeing someone take it home with them and get some kind of enjoyment out of it.

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

Time! Life is busy and making the time to create something outside of current projects can be challenging.
