I do apparel alterations and customize the pieces with blind contour illustrations I draw of my friends.
Also, I’ve been expanding my repertoire to the world of BeDazzling.
Billboard Pride come to life,
writing articles, interviewing some awesome queer peeps, and feeling terribly out of place at red carpet events.
I worked with an incredible team of writers and designers on ORANGE Magazine, a Austin-based publication dedicated to amplifying marginalized voices.
I spent a summer in Los Angeles on Apple Music’s Music Content and Editorial team connecting over 60 million music junkies worldwide.
I explore visual artwork that confronts the self-image and speaks to the complete inability to truly capture ourselves within any other medium than our own existence.
Unsurprisingly, everything ends up looking pretty dreadful.
I found this old Nikon CoolPix 995 in some store I’ve since forgotten the name of and turns out the image-capturing system is very oddly broken.
Taking pictures with the contraption has been a lesson in patience, identity, and mortality.
Here is a photo story I put together for ORANGE Magazine.
I teamed up with The Color Complex, a women-of-color social initiative, to put on The Museum of Color.
The museum housed a collection of sculpture, sound, and otherwise mundane objects that each spoke to an individual’s history with colorism, bringing the abstraction to an arresting physical form.
And I got to facilitate a community-created sculpture along the duration of the exhibit!
