With a master's from Columbia University in clinical social work and the crushing debt to prove it, Luna fell back on her sense of humor to survive on the mean streets of San Francisco. With a background in supporting schools and organizations with anti-bias training, Luna blends her passion for social justice and comedy together to challenge the notion of what's impossible. She's also the visionary behind EquiTable, a comedic app which explores the wage gap featured in acclaimed news sites across the world- from The Atlantic and Huffington Post to China News Daily and the London Telegraph. Never the type to shy away from subjects, she crafted Live Sex SF, a comedy talk-show exploring sex and relationships as a way to combine her debaucherously charming humor and her life-long love of sexology. A fixture in the stand-up scene, Luna performs regularly in comedy clubs across the country. She's explores topics of sex and race as a writer for Fusion.net and is also an artist in residence at African American Arts and Culture Complex.
