Passions

 

I am passionate about community. As a queer person who identifies as nonbinary trans and is on the autism spectrum, the sense of belonging and being accepted is huge. I love bringing people together and creating safe spaces for people to be themselves. I'm also a visual artist and am extremely passionate about art. It is related to community and bringing people together.

Plug In

 

I allow myself space to process and go through all emotions I may feel. I enjoy being by water when I need to rebalance and reconnect. Putting myself out there on a canvas through goopy polymer paints also allows me to plug in to the deepest parts of myself. Another way I connect all my dots is taking a deep breath and reminding myself that I'm nonbinary and that this is trans. 

Community

Oh gosh! It's the most important thing to me. As a queer person I try very hard to be around those who get it. The more I feel accepted the more I can be me, and help others. I love supporting others and knowing that that is what community is for.
