I’ve been publishing zines for most of my life. In 2007, I started volunteering in zine libraries. I’m passionate about zines and independent media because I’m always looking for new and affordable technology that give people a voice.
In May 2018, I created Anna Delvey Foundation, found at annadelveyfoundation.org, an online archive and digital resource center for cult news and grift reviews. The online archive followed the story of Anna Sorokin (“Anna Delvey”) who took New York by storm when she ran up a $200,000 tab primarily on hotels and investment banks. The Anna Delvey Foundation was a blog dedicated to collecting, preserving and cataloging records on con artists, cult figures, and scammers (both real and imagined) for socio-cultural research in order to bring light to the darker side of humanity.
The website was created in 2018 to track news updates on the evolving story. As much as it was a hobby project, it quickly gained notoriety. In 2019, the site had over 10,000 unique visitors.
