One thing a poet can do is

create the conditions

to bring forth people who find

oppression unacceptable

- Tongo Eisen-Martin

I am a writer, artist, and performer living in Western Pennsylvania. I enjoy working with hybridity, found texts, and erasure. My work converses largely around topics of a/sexuality, ghosts, mental illness, and the difficulty of living, loving, and communicating in late stage capitalism. I am also an avid book binder and run Reject Press, an online lit journal centered on the theme of rejection in creative spaces.
