I helped organize the Birmingham Zine Festival.
I created the Midlands Zinester group on this site, and have organized several meetups.
I run the 365 Zines a Year blog.

Ask me if you want to trade!
I also make artist trading cards (ATCs). Here is my ATC blog, ask me if you want to trade some of those too. Though if you trade zines with me I will probably just send you one anyway.
I started the Vancouver Food Not Bombs blog last year, but nobody else seemed to want to update it, so it has just become about me going to Food Not Bombses wherever I travel.
Also: an article I wrote on zines at the Vancouver public library.
