I am a trained lawyer, teacher and playwright with a knack for telling quirky stories about the experiences of queer people of color, mostly women, and sometimes young. I have a solid background in advocacy work, which has manifested in my writing. I am inspired by content that freshly tackles stories from unheard voices...and it's my mission to do the same.
Though I am originally from Houston, TX, I have lived ALL over the country and abroad, so I carry the idea of "home" in my heart.
Location: Los Angeles... & New York City (always)
