Who I am and What I Do

My vision is to fundamentally transform what counts as politics through my writing. By shifting what is considered political, I want to enable socio-political engagement that nurtures, radicalizes and shifts our communities toward joy, overall health, well being and justice.

From The Blog

"I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood. That the speaking profits me, beyond any other effect..." ~ Audre Lorde
