When I was five, my mother let me in on a little secret— she told me that I could be anything I wanted to be, if only I put my mind to it. 

I believed her. 

Her encouragement was a rite of passage of sorts, for my shape-shifting tendencies as both an artist and arts practitioner. Since then, my curiosity in the past and longing for a more hopeful future has compelled me to push towards being a living and breathing example of what is possible in the current-present. Led by this spirit of inquiry and desire, my work interrogates soul urge(ncy) and seeks to restore balance amongst past familial, ancestral, and collective traumas, with the intent of guiding a more vibrant and harmonious future.
