Ramdasha Bikceem began writing zines and playing in punk bands when she was 15 years old while living in the throes of a Wasp New Jersey suburban wasteland. She was inspired by punk feminist zines of the late '80s and early '90s. Currently she lives in Los Angeles where she attends a cosmetology program, runs an online vintage clothing business & throws a monthly queer party with friends. She periodically writes criticism and observations on social media and often gets a lot of "likes."

She received a BA from Antioch College, where she studied Cultural Studies and Visual Arts. She has worked in many mediums including music, painting, drawing, collage, and textile art. Melanie has recently begun reaching back to to some performance roots by exploring, with wit, heart, and some sadness, her experiences as a Queer, Black, chronically ill woman type person, through a mash-up of stand up comedy, memoir, and prose.
