Growing up, I was always able to express myself best through the written word. This passion led me to pursue an MFA in Creative Writing, an opportunity that helped me develop as a writer and hone my artistic voice. 

As a queer, nonbinary person, I look within and to my communities for fresh inspiration. For me, books are places where we can collectively hope and heal. To that end, each project I work on is a unique reflection of the world as I see it or dream it could be.

My first picture book, Not He Or She, I'm Me will be released by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers on October 17, 2023. My second picture book, Mama, Zaza, and Me was acquired by Henry Holt Books for Young readers and is currently in production.

I am available for school visits, speaking engagements, offer recurring workshops for new and established writers and work
as an editor on a freelance basis. Please reach out to learn more!
