Work

I love: unsolved things, archival research, world-building, queering genre fiction, complicated women+, dalliances with unlikeability, mysteries, the monstrous, magical realism, and the tragedy of ghosts. Learning to be a better intersectional feminist. Constructivism and different brains. Languages in all their twisty graftings and illogical roots. I love humor, games, and the way children tell stories. Consent. Exuberance. Revenge. Punch lines and poptimism.

I know: that I’m not done yet. Not even close. I’m always looking for new collaborators who I can learn from and create with. If you want to be one of those people please contact me.
