I have been part of racial, educational, and environmental justice organizations dedicated to cultivating a better future for all, especially marginalized communities. I come from San José and a proud, hard-working family of immigrants. As a second-generation college graduate in my family and an increasingly engaged member in the poetic community, I consider it a great privilege to have various mediums of communal and academic support for my writing growth.

I’m a shapeshifting chameleon night owl bellowing into the oceanic void, constantly phoenixing the architecture of my body. I’ve had the pleasure to be published in the Mercury News, various zines (“The Radical Zine Vol. 2” with The Resource Center for Nonviolence, “Lissen… Vol. 1”), Rigorous Magazine, and
