I write poems about love and loss, joy and wonder, and places too winding for simple conversation.

I perform spoken word, giving sound to the injustices endured by my people. Giving my larynx over to reverberating truths and traumas.

I put my thoughts down. They become essays. Sometimes, short anecdotes. Sometimes short stories.

I hope one, any, all of these mediums find a way to reach you. I hope they tell you something new, or validate something you’ve known all along. I leave them here, in love.
