I am a poet and astrologer currently based in Brooklyn, NY.

I was born on March 4, 1989,

7:26 pm, New York City,

under a balsamic moon.

I like to plant seeds.

 

I am an artist.

I am a writer.

I am an astrologer.

My work is poetry.  This comes from a deep admiration and constant engagement with lyrical text. I love music and was trained as a classical 'cellist. Before anything else, I was a musician. I don't know if I'm still a musician. But I'm a writer with a keen sense of rhythm. Of dynamics. And melody.

I am always writing songs.

I grew up in Northern Westchester County, just far away enough from New York City to be completely immersed in the woods.

I have lived in New York City for a decade now.

I moved to the city to study Theatre at NYU.

I never wanted to be a theatre artist, but it was a form that came very naturally to me. 

I have been experimenting and finding joy in framing my work as poetry and collage:

translating my deep understanding and respect for theater (event!) to a page.

My work is portraiture.
In fact, it is all a self portrait.
My work is rooted in my identity, and my wish to assert that identity in the world (usually in a way that is both bright and gradual). 

My work doesn't take reality for granted. When creating collaboratively, my work embraces community and non-hierarchical modes. I make art so that I can celebrate my peers. And learn. And be well.

I work really well with a partner. And with a team. Maybe that's you.
