bio

I'm a writer, researcher, and visual artist. I've worked in the spheres of human rights, gender, sexuality, public health and community development. Currently working towards a more just and diverse society, listening more and better, unlearning, and (re)wilding. My linkedin page for details.  

*** 

Creatively returning to essays, poetry, and multimedia artwork. Recently: the Queer Enough portrait project, exploring and celebrating what queer can mean.  

Yes to the hard slog of creative process, thoughtful collaborations, liberation for all people, asking the hard questions, making mistakes, beginning again, taking (tiny to medium) risks, and being gentle with self.  

Yes to a mad multiplicity of human stories, infinite narratives of creatures and the natural world. There is room for every one, let's work to make it so!
