Purposefully Pursuing Pleasure

I find pleasure in and am liberated when exchanging stories that create a sense of belonging. I use written and visual language to design provocative spaces that help us acknowledge and honor the unseen parts of ourselves, the mysteries of one another, and the world around us. I delve into human existence, capturing fleeting moments of shame, awakening, joy, grief, and everything in between. I believe environments that nurture collaboration, imagination, and rejuvenation serve as incubators for personal rebirth and collective renewal. This is the essence of my work as an educator, entrepreneur, author, and artist. I’m audacious, unconventional, and currently pursuing an unexplored love affair with my creativity to disentangle myself from societal expectations and fully embrace my inherent identity as a creator.
