Meet The Team

Senior Staff:

With the exception of Alex Vega, all Senior Staff Members listed below are Full or Part-Time employees of Autostraddle. To manage your expectations when contacting a team member, we’ve put asterisks next to those who are actual full-time employees (there are only six!) and double-asterisks next to part-timers — due to limited financial resources, the vast majority of our team does their Autostraddle work on top of other full-time or part-time commitments.
