I am a storyteller and my home is New Mexico.
This complex place is my first love and where I was taught about the relationship of land to identity. Each have become common threads in my writing, which I see as a hybrid practice somewhere between my academic background and PhD in visual and cultural studies from the University of Rochester, and journalism. I have taught classes at the university level, served as a consultant with various museums about exhibitions and collections, curated shows featuring queer artists and artists of color, as well as worked in publishing as the senior editor of New Mexico Magazine, where I regularly sought writers of color and authentic storytelling. I continue to write about such topics as land use, gentrification, critical art practices, and food sovereignty. I am a recipient of a Creative Capital Arts Writers Grant and a Fulcrum Fund.
