I’m a storyteller living and loving in Brooklyn. I love writing poetry, reading books, making shit, painting feelings, and other things!!!!

poetry and politics.


Maya Angelou: When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

Carla Bruni, Patti Smith, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande - all incredibly strong women who are willing to take creative risks and have their art evolve with them as they grow.

I love language and learning new languages. I somehow learned enough Arabic to get by in conversations while in Morocco last year.

I remember feelings!!!!!!!!!!!

I would teach on how poetry has unlocked a whole new wave of creative energy within me, and its benefits to my mental health has been absolutely incredible. I would love to share my experience to hopefully encourage more people to consider poetry as an outlet for them by sharing my tips and tricks for "breaking in" to the poetry scene. I know it can be intimidating at first, but it is truly one of the most welcoming and amazing creative spaces that I have stumbled upon while living in NYC.
