I am a whirlwind of energy- always circling, expanding and absorbing, even while still. My life experiences have had such an impact on my consciousness that I’ve found that writing has allowed me the opportunity to process my often strong feelings through sharing and artistic use of words. Poetry, then, became my therapy, play writing became my podium and essays became my study hall as I mastered ways to engage audiences. I am still expanding. Yet, my moments of stillness, when my work becomes a part of someone else’s whirlwind, I am most appreciative. For then, I believe, my art has begun to live. From performing to writing and teaching, I thrive off of opportunities to share ideas and incite dialogue through the use of art.
