My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
a list of words: queer, multi-ethnic, Afrikan, Coharie nDn, writer, radical (the kind that's about liberated land and peoples), herbalist, a family-guy.

i write mostly short stories and novellas right now, but have dabbled in plays and poetry. i'm excited to do more readings around oakland, and somewhat excited about going to grad school this fall for an MFA. i'll be putting on decolonial creative writing classes, too, oriented around revitalizing ancestral knowledges through storytelling.

i'm always working on a community/art/writing/ceremonial type project, so i would be down to have a sweetie who is into all of that <3
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
*community-wise, i'm working on healing clinics, transformative justice work, liberating land for Afrikans, plotting indigenous takeovers, queering up spaces...
*otherwise: i'm plotting to get another RV and have a few more adventures. tincturing herbs, writing a story, counseling, gardening, reading, doing ancestral work...
* having 4 a.m epiphanies because I stay up wait too late for my grandpa self.
* thinking about and living out non-monogamy, queerness, survival, abuse culture, anti-blackness and settler colonialism and borders, all the fun things really.
* having "controversial" beliefs that I am always terribly unashamed of
* being with fat cats that think their beds are my bed
I’m really good at

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-pigment.
-writing & storytelling by fires

-live music
-food trucks
-weird friends who validate my weirdness

I forgot to add ' total destroy'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
well, this is embarrassing...

global issues? yeah.

fml. i meant to say cats
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
back in the day I would be traveling around. nowdays I'm probably putting on an event or going to one. i'm in love with the communities i'm in, from the queer fam to the comrades to the homies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
im probably high on the neuroticism scale some days...meh. i keep a lot of that to myself since i'm mindful.

the most unprivate thing: i've had some shit cards dealt to me in life, much of which have gotten better as i've gotten older, but i don't let things destroy my ability to love. if anything, i probably love harder because of it
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
if you like my unintentionally awkward humor AND you have pigment, too. i especially have unparalleled love for my Afrikan and/or Indigenous and/or queer or gender-variant and/or trans ppl.
