PERFORMING

I have curated, led, and shared with panels, workshops, and events around the world. Most involved art talks about past work, domestic violence, creative working, and transgender inclusion and safety in all settings. 

I'm a sucker for discomfort & deeply investing in stories. I feel immersed in my film acting training and take on projects that scare me. Coming soon is my next indie feature and TV debut. 

Lately YA lit, screenplays, emotional emails, & forever anthologies - my most recent collection becoming a Lambda Literary Finalist. Much of my content focuses on bodies, crushes, cyclical violence, LGBTQIA+ narratives.


AND HEY! The Ship We Built with Penguin Random House just came out in paperback this summer!
