I'm a heart surgery survivor, writer, medical mystery extraordinaire, and activist currently living in Los Angeles. I'm a non-binary queer woman (she/they) who is actively seeking a refund on the bargain-bin body I got from the universe. In the absence of that refund, I do my best to survive - just like we all do. I have a connective tissue disorder (hi, Ehlers Danlos crew!) and I’m an open heart surgery survivor. I live with dysautonomia, MCAS, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
Professionally, I work as a ghostwriter and content writer. I utilize my personal writing an avenue for starting conversations, stirring honesty, and creating change. I focus on writing and organizing about sexual violence, chronic illness, institutional corruption, disability rights, LGBTQ+ issues, and misogyny. You can commonly find me writing about issues that complement the campaigns and work of other activists on the ground.
Storytelling and honesty are how I've chosen to survive and attempt to do some good on this dystopian hellscape of a planet. Storytelling wields the power to humanize us and to connect with people who otherwise would never listen. Honesty is what gives those stories their power, and perhaps more importantly, it builds a sustainable foundation for collaboration based on common understanding, vulnerability, and truth. When we're honest, we get shit done.
