My dispatch for Roads & Kingdoms from the Women's World Cup in Canada. This was a super assignment for a soccer fan, and I finally got to write about FIFA's "Blatter control problems." All around win. Read it here.
In April 2015, I sat down with Ellie Gordon-Moershel of the PrideHouseTO podcast to discuss sports, LGBTQ inclusion, writing, female footballers in Latin America, the boundaries of effective allyship, and Sochi 2014.

Keph Senett is a masterful storyteller who delivers perfectly polished copy. An editor’s dream.

The interviews, the way you took me to the place with just a few words, almost made me cry… I remember those days when I used to be a player, a part of a team.

Just met Keph Senett. Just as funny and inappropriate in person. Awesome.

When Keph Senett writes, readers travel. Regardless of the subject matter. As a PR professional in the travel industry, I read—and write—stories on a regular basis. After a while, too many sound the same. This is where Keph differs. Her talent for observation and description surprises and beguiles. Her work stirs emotion and she clearly and concisely paints pictures. I find her style to be fresh and human and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking authentic, interesting writing.

Keph Senett is a writer to watch.

Remember that time I went to Moscow to support the Russian LGBT Sport Federation during the Sochi Olympic Games? I wrote a story about it that ended up in a collection of travel disasters.
