A little bit about me

I spend most of my days dreaming of how to deepen connections to the biosphere on a mass scale. This requires a critical shift in the ways in which we engage with one another and an examination of how capitalism, white supremacy, and centuries-long destruction of our indigenous roots under colonialism harm our relationship to our beloved Earth.

I currently engage with groups doing work to shift our focus on community in the Just Transition of our local economies, and collective way of being.

I steward projects with climate and environmental justice in mind.

Energy Democracy Project

National Campaign Coordinator. Energy democracy activists across the country are calling for control, ownership, and decision-making regarding energy resources to reside in the community rather than in remote corporate boardrooms as the failure of the centralized energy model become more evident in the face of ongoing climate disaster. 2022 is big year for our national movement--from Puerto Rico to Alaska, we're building people power to push for safe, reliable, resilient, sustainable, and equitable energy across the country.

Supporting The Bees!

Bee Keeper/Steward/Fan. These beautiful pollinators and their microcosmic patterns defy geopolitical borders, gender norms, and labor values. Ask me about how bees can help us rethink land outside of a neocolonial lens...

ART
& CREATIONS

My creativity is a direct reflection of my interaction with and adoration for the Earth. I believe art to be a radical practice, that when paired with authentic connection to the land, our joys, and our griefs, opens up entirely new worlds of possibilities.

RECORDED MUSIC

SOLO MUSICAL PERFORMANCE

*In Development* I am currently re-working my approach to performance and music-making, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2022, I am recommitting to a connection with Cumbia percussion and vocals patterns, and honoring its rich traditions rooted in the Afro-centric Caribbean coast of Columbia that has now spanned massive land regions and a long history of the mezcla that is intrinsic to latinidad.

ANCESTRAL HEALING

BORIKÉN BICYCLE TOUR 2023

Cycling is a practice in meditation, humility, and ancestral connection. In 2023, artists of Caribbean & Taíno ancestry will be traveling to Borikén (Puerto Rico) to reconnect with our home waters, create together, and heal together.

This is an ancestral journey via bicycle to pay tribute to those who came before, the dynamics of our 21st century identities, and the future generations to come.

I GET

Spending time with the natural world inspires me to dream of new futures, and of our collective liberation.

In 2022, I've been selected as an athlete with Ride for Racial Justice, a nationwide organization expanding access to resources, education, and community for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) cyclists and to dismantle systemic racism so that EVERYONE can feel safe, free, and empowered to ride a bicycle. This year, I'll be riding in SBT GRVL in Steamboat Springs, Colorado with the Ride for Racial Justice team!
