About Me

I like my photos the way I like my fats: saturated!

I’m a queer black essayist from Philly. I fancied myself a fiction writer until I encountered a genre-queer called creative nonfiction. My work engages with matters of race, gender, sexuality, and mental health.

The essays that rewired my brain:

“You and Whose Army?” by Hilton Als

“Beach City” by Jaquira Díaz

Personal mantra:

Your silence will not protect you. Audre Lorde, “The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action”

Personal anthem:

I feel most colored when I’m looking at my bank account Danez Smith, “C.R.E.A.M.”
