I am a writer and creative professional who uses writing to explore history, meditate on art and faith, and examine culture, identity, and belonging. I desire to use writing as an embodied practice that engages the reader's mind, body, and soul. As a political act, I seek to use my writing to highlight marginalized communities and stories in my work, and, according to philosopher Herbert Marcuse, "challenge what is; imagine what could be." I also aim to employ writing as an act of liberation, helping individuals express themselves creatively and, as James Baldwin wrote, "realize the doom and glory of knowing who you are and what you are."
