About

I am a Black feminist writer whose passions revolve around DC residents and good IPAs. It is my life’s goal to uplift the stories of Black people’s joys, complexities, and pleasures. I want us to continue imagining a world where we are free to be our best selves.

As an editor, I strive to help writers – with special interest in supporting Black writers experiencing trans/misogynoir – tell their stories in beautiful and personally meaningful ways. My passion for exploring myself and my people through language trickles into my professional work, where I strive to uplift Black people – our voices and experiences – through political communications strategy and narrative framing

When I’m not writing self-indulgent poetry or sweating over erotic fiction, I organize with Black women in my community to provide material support such as groceries, tutoring services, and childcare to my people.
