Deejay is a long-time fan -- since the late 1970s -- and an active contributor to whatever fandoms she is in at the time. She has been a fanfic writer, fanfic editor, graphics artist, sci-fi/fantasy costumer and beta reader. She has published fanzines, and currently moderates online communities, writes fanfic and creates vids. She is perhaps best known as a songvidder and as a conventions organizer and chairman - for both fan-only and professional-guest cons. Has taught lots of fabulous vidders how to vid.

Creator and webmanager of Scottish actor Angus Macfadyen's official web site, '...Starring Angus Macfadyen' ("S.A.M."), since 2003.

Deejay's vids were often handed out to fans as recruiter vids. In 1993, Sandy Herrold related the following anecdote to the Virgule-L mailing list. It is reposted here with permission:
"True story--not too long ago, [an actor from the TV show The Professionals was at a Southern California fan's house, and she decided to show him some song vids. He loved "Too Long a Soldier" and made her call DJ so he could ask her to make her copies of (quote) 'all the Bodie songids she'd done.' DJ's no idiot--she looks at all the Bodie songvids she's done, and decides he doesn't need/want to see most of them! (He knows about slash, but is UNAMUSED.) She finally does send him Mellow when I'm dead, Too Long, and a couple of others. (I'm still sad she decided not to send him Deteriarata (sp)--she decided against it relistening to the line--"know what to kiss, and when..."
