I am a writer, an artist, and an advocate for change. Change happens when we learn to merely exist as we are. In writing that is vulnerable and tender, in art that is lively and active, I am crafting a space that is human. A space that is messy and raw and real. My work is another world that I invite you to immerse yourself in. I hope you feel disturbed and comforted at once.
