Also, just to be clear, when people are talking about defunding and divestment, it’s an attempt to dismantle the violence that is used by the armed forces and invest in community liaisons, mediators, trained individuals to help people with economic and mental health issues. To invest in schools and art and music and health care and healthy foods and clean water.
Because what makes a life? An embryo? A bank account? In what ways do we define life? Is it special, sacred, magical or does it instead reflect the circumstances of our times and the right one who exists independently, that is outside of a women’s body, with guaranteed, or rather protected, safety from human predators particularly those who carry guns and intimidate with the purpose of carrying out injustice. Disarm, defund and dissolve the police force. Police yourself and invest in racial and gender justice and opportunities for poor communities – not violence, corruption and systematic oppression of black, brown, indigenous, trans, non-binary and disabled folks.

From 2012, new 'About' coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this nostalgia from my life five years ago:
I am an artist, writer, researcher, filmmaker, photographer, playwright, actor, and director in Ridgewood, Queens. I know that might seem like a lot of things to be so I should say I experiment in a variety of disciplines and mediums; concepts and absurdities. I studied in The Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art. I moved to the area in June 2010 after graduating.
Since moving to NYC I've been feeling pulled back to my first loves: writing and theater; and the surreal, emotional, and abstract. I am also very involved with radical politics and I'm particularly interested in blending internal and external structures. I wrote a semi-surreal one act play called "The Rootless: A Play About America" last year which divulged the madness of capitalism and was performed at The Producer's Club with Love Creek Productions. I recently wrote another one act play called "The Thousand Lives of a Nomad" which is a story about the task, escape, and intrigue of continually making new lives in different places. The story is told through the lens of a 33 year-old woman originally from Finland and now residing in Brooklyn. It's staged to be a "live animation" of sorts and, personally I think it's both funny and thoughtful.
On-going projects include a constant evolving series of smoke drawings, a documentary about the business behind social media and Facebook; hope of rekindling my love affair with large format photography, and a perpetual mid-life crisis...
