Hello! This is your skater librarian, Natalie Porter. I began skateboarding in 1995 and wrote a thesis paper in 2003 called, Female Skateboarders and Their Negotiation of Space and Identity, before becoming a librarian in 2009.

I’ve written and published a variety of articles, essays, and interviews on related topics, and continue to skate today. My list of publications can be found here. Please contact me below and follow the updates on Instagram. Thank you for your support and contributions.
