I am a creative and critical writer and artist whose work is deeply informed by my cultures and communities (including African, Caribbean, American, and queer), by history, and by a sense of play.

I draw on reality to create non-literal interpretations of contemporary and historical experiences of African and Caribbean people. My staged and guerilla performance art is culturally and politically engaged, often takes place in public, and utilizes the language of movement as well as spoken and written text. My poetry often “moves” on the page, using different forms of English and different physical and poetic structures. With all of my work, my goal is to make people feel, wonder, and think, in that order.
