Dani has written for SBS, VICE, Pedestrian.tv, Broadsheet and more. They’re the online content assistant for Archer Magazine, the world’s most progressive gender and sexuality magazine. They write about feminism, LGBTIQA issues, pop culture and mental health. Except one time she wrote about getting her cat a chakra cleanse and it went viral in Germany (true story).
Dani studied Professional Communication at RMIT, where she was the recipient of the George Alexander Foundation Scholarship for leadership and community involvement.

When Dani’s not at PROJECT ROCKIT, they work with a social media company, making memes about melted cheese and garlic bread for 2.1 million fans. They love playing Hotline Bling on piano, singing and also own a custom jewellery company where they print the faces of friends, pets or celebrities onto earrings.
Likes: Mermaids, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, friendship, Lizze Mcquire, making collages about their feelings, wearing colourful wigs, looking at pictures of dogs on the Internet, the solar system, RuPaul’s Drag Race and vinyl records.
Dislikes: How obsessed they are with Vampire Diaries, the bottom of the ocean, bigoted and hateful people, having scary dreams about zombies, running out of podcasts to listen to.
