“What’s a girl doing here?” from Narratively on Vimeo.

There are 46,000 cabs in New York City, and a commensurately large number of cab drivers, but only one hundred seventy of them are women. Narratively’s feature on the life of a female cabbie begins with the reactions they get, but goes on to simply talk about their lives, why cab driving works for them as a profession, and why it’s a job they enjoy and love.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
