Writer Statement

I come from a long line of storytellers. As such, I tell stories because it's all I've ever known. As a writer, I create work that engages with the themes of race, power, trust, and relationships. I enjoy playing with structure and directly challenging what we've come to hold as the standard for storytelling. My work explores Blackness from all angles, experimenting with both the heightened and the mundane. Through this exploration, I illuminate the ways in which all Blackness is Black excellence, as we've survived in a world that has made it abundantly clear it would prefer if we didn't.
