hi, my name is joan.

about.


I'm a writer, angel investor and creative director. I founded a tech PR and communications firm called Studio Self, and I'm building Von, a branding consultancy.

My writing has been published in The SF Chronicle, Wired, The AFR, The Observer, ABC, Junkee, SBS, Crikey and over 40+ publications. My regular work can be found on Pizza Party, sharing notes on growing as a creative, a founder, an investor and a human being.

I created Transgenderinclusion.com, an open-source workplace inclusion hack, and I wrote a book called #DIY, a manifesto for indie creativity.
