A true polymath, Kona has been actively involved in her local and international communities since 1998. Earning her lucre as a bureaucrat in the arts and culture sector, she is also a professional film and TV actor, a writer, an event producer, an educator/advocate, a singer, and a media commentator/ socialite.
Under the handle NubianImp.com, Kona educates, and compulsively produces events with a focus on sex-postitive queers, chosen-families, and their allies. Additionally, she is a co-founder and dis-organizer with the deviant dykes of Canadian Mayhem, producing tri-yearly events since 2006 including the Mayhem conference of 2009, and DeadSexy Queered in 2010.
A relocated Albertan, she currently lives online and on Vancouver’s Eastside with her Charge, BootBlack Jac, and two feline balls of affection. Beyond The Queeriodic Table, Kona is researching and writing her first novel and planning more art projects.
You can find her online at her much neglected home of NubianImp.com, and the usual internet haunts.
