I'm an asexual who grew up in Richmond, Virginia craving more stories I could relate to. When I couldn't find them, I started writing with friends around the world while my flair for travel and stories led me to South Carolina and Belfast for university, and global organizations like National Geographic and Reporters Without Borders.

Now, as a communications operations strategist in Washington, D.C., I'm still reading, creating, and watching stories of brilliantly broken and different people trying to get by while maybe doing some good along the way. More than anything, I want to be someone who can elevate those perspectives and journeys.
