who am I?

I am an actor and writer from New York in ruthless pursuit of finding intersections of art, queerness, and sustainability—and bringing audiences along for the ride. In all I do, massive and minuscule, my goal is to create equitable, diverse, and unconventional artistic spaces and experiences.

fiction, nonfiction, and poetry



My non-fiction essay, “Boys (A 7-Part Dance About Queerness)” will appear in the inaugural issue of the new literary magazine, The Galvanist. The piece is an account of formative experiences with queerness, and is paired with gestural illustrations. Stay tuned for a link—the publication will be released in a few short weeks.


I have been writing poetry consistently since high school. On my blog you will find poems about such things as my refrigerator, birds, Yosemite, the poodles of New York, and pre-Renaissance altarpieces. You will also find a much less serious About Me page than you’ll find on this site.
