I’m a poet! I write and perform regularly, as well as organize local poetry events in Western MA.

In 2012, I started writing poetry. Because I love the sound of my own voice, and engaging in processes that grant me forms of validation, I started participating in open-mics and slam competitions.

I write about topics like mental illness, fatness, girlhood, and occasionally other things that either grind my gears or make me weepy. Sometimes I'm funny. I like to think about culpability, agency, and the ways I can be more accountable in my writing and my life.

I am available to perform in New England, and nationally, if travel is budgeted for. Please contact for rates!
