I am a PhD candidate in the Composition and Cultural Rhetoric Program at Syracuse University with an MA in journalism and an MFA in poetry. I believe deeply in teaching, organizing, and writing as collective efforts focused on transformative action. I work on the daily to think and act from a place of accountability, mutuality, and relationality. That is, I conceive of my work as  feminist anti-racist praxis—as a doingand our composing technologies as tools to create a free and just world.
