I am a gender non-conforming, Afrofuturistic, multidimensional artist weaving healing energy into my works for myself and others to evolve. I moved to Los Angeles with my single mother to pursue her passion of the arts and by association became very involved in everything theatrical. She enrolled me in a conservatory program focussed on teaching black and brown students the arts through: singing, dancing, and acting. I found art truly being my saving grace allowing me to process my emotions, growth, trauma, and aspects of myself that may have been judged if they weren’t explored on a stage. I have always been drawn to heightened realities. I continued exploring my relationship with the arts at Carnegie Mellon Uni learning very much about myself, destroying assumption, boxes, and labels while actively trying to participate in an entertainment industry very focussed on type and branding. The more that I evolved and remembered myself, the more I realized how little I saw myself in the art that drew me to the arts to begin with. The homogeny of race and sexuality within storytelling pushed me towards the pieces that I want to create for myself and others around me. 3 years ago with my involvement with local activism, my own journey of self care/healing, and finding a community that allowed me to grow authentically is when I rebirthed my artistic self. This year I have created more than I ever have and from a place that is grounded in the core of why I create. I create to heal, I create to express myself, and I create to be in ceremony.
