Michelle Olley is a RAW-inspired writer, editor, filmmaker, Cosmic Trigger play and event co-producer. In the 1990s, she was a director of Skin Two magazine – the world’s leading fetish lifestyle and culture magazine, and instigated their charity event, the Skin Two Rubber Ball.

She spent her twenties and thirties herding cats and scraping deadlines on various magazines, including Attitude, fashion quarterly P.U.R.E, and pioneering gay lifestyle title, Fable. She spent her forties monkey butlering in TV, principally with the European arm of late-night comedy mavericks, Adult Swim, where she championed a number of shows, not least, the criminally under-rated Venture Bros.

Michelle has written and edited six anthologies of art and photography, and contributed to many magazines including The Sunday Times, DJ, The Independent, i-D, Bonfide and Vice and is currently putting together an anthology of her writing and a number of monkey pirate projects which she’d love to tell you about but then she’d have to kill you…
