Hi! I am a gender-liminal multi- and inter-disciplinary artist. I am glad to see you here! And i am so grateful to the people supporting my efforts, on and off of this platform, thank you thank you thank YOOOOOUUU!!!

What kind of work do I do? I am mostly a writer. I have a book of poetry, a novel that is currently being shopped out, some reviews up in Muzzle Magazine, an essay in them, and i've written plays that have been presented at Dixon Place and at queer theatre festivals via Horse Trade Theater and at the Tank. Right now my big writing projects are editing my novel, working on a new poetry manuscript about monsters / transformation, and working on a new play.

Saying i'm "mostly" a writer, though, is me trying to avoid that i also have a body. I am a performer, and have been a performance poet for approximately my whole life. I act in other people's work. I also figure model for artists. I like thinking about the subject-object / body-mind / consumer-provider dualities and how to subvert them. I make art objects, yes, and as a trans person, (even a masc spectrum white trans person) my survival is an art.

I am still learning how to make this platform make sense for my work and i am very open to feedback and suggestion about what to provide. I would love to hear from you. <3

This is hard, because it seems like an extravagant number, but i need to ask for what i need. This would give me freedom to focus on my creative work and not take on the depleting other income streams i am presently drowning in.
Thank you for giving me the freedom to create work with the pace and scope i want.
