I write stories that matter, so that the world can begin to understand the necessity for valuable representation of marginalized communities. I am a queer black woman, and that is essential to how I approach my writing; whether it be through characters, settings, or experiences. There is value in collaboration, and I am always open to work with other writers, creatives, or producers so we can do the work that needs to be done.
