i am a musician and am trying to be as productive with whatever
time i have on earth as i can be! touring. the oakland diy scene.
clowning. creative confrontation as a means of disruption, opening
up spaces to all voices. vegan. grew up in the deep south and am a
composite of many different cultural influences though the most
important thing ive learned is to be confident in what i believe
outside any surrounding dominant cultural contexts. holler at me
let's hang out!

i dont really believe that ones tastes determine ones relatability
as a human being but if you value iconoclastic forms of expression
counter to complacency that exist outside of a culture valuing
money we probably share some favorites. by which i mean YOU GOTTA
BE UH PUNK
im really good at making southern style vegan food. i love
vegetables that are fried or boiled until they are falling apart
(its my comfort food!!). i also like light healthy raw stuff fruits
The six things I could never do without
insulin, food, some means of creative expression (my voice counts),
other people, nature, the feeling that i am doing something
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what i'm doing with my life, lyrics, upcoming projects or bands,
sex, imaginary grandiose scenarios, whatever the dream world has
just left crumbs of in my brain, when im gonna die
On a typical Friday night I am
with mutant punks getting throwed watching something beautiful
suspend time, or writing poetry and being cold, delirious from
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i am an extremely emotional person (kind of constantly in flux
inside me). if youve seen me perform that might be obvious but i
dont always talk it out with anybody i just try to focus it
money makes me uncomfortable. i hate rich men. think about the
things you do, are they free? no one turned away for lack of funds?
that will be important. buy me food.
You should message me if
- DIY/punk is something important to you. i exist in a scene of
mutants, not based on money or consumerism.
-MUSIC AFFECTS YOU IN A WAY THAT IS WAY TOO INTENSE AT TIMES (THIS
IS A REGULAR EXPERIENCE FOR ME: WATCHING WAGNER'S RING CYCLE,
LISTENING TO A BARR SONG, HEARING AN UNNACCOMPANIED HUMAN VOICE IN
A BATHROOM, INSIDES TURNING INTO SWANS AND WOZZECK, GIRL GROUP SOUL
45S, AD NAUSEUM). CRY.
-YOU YOURSELF PERCEIVE LIFE AND COMMUNICATE IT IN A WAY THAT IS
GENUINE AND YET TOO INTENSE AND UNIQUE FOR MOST PEOPLE
-you identify with some subculture but oft feel ennui within it
because you have the inability to conform to nonconformist
-you understand human beings as multifaceted and process oriented
beings, try to spend time growing, doing self care, not judging,
empathizing, and want to share genuine experiences with
-consent and communication are the most important parts for you of
-be a punk. no yuppies, no burners.
