Books. Photo taken by Ardo Omer.


My name is Ardo and I write.

I got my start in online writing as a book blogger in 2012 and since then, I’ve written for SlateThe Toast, HyperallergicComics Bulletin and SideReel, and was the senior editor of Women Write About Comics. I’m a regular contributing writer at Book Riot.

I’m a Somali-Canadian with an interest in books, comics, television and film. I’m a huge an advocate for diversity in media and recently discovered a love for research/fact-checking.

I have a BA in criminology and a minor in creative writing from York University. I’m currently taking a post-graduate certificate program at Humber College in professional writing and communications.

Also: Batman and I are the best of friends.

You can catch me on Twitter.
