Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

As a young Afro-Latina actor, I quickly learned the characters written for people that looked like me were usually attacked or killed onstage. My work speaks directly to those early experiences and in the most honest, respectful way responds, “F*** that.”

My writing explores fluid identities, found families, and all the silly ways we seek love and acceptance. I love writing about very serious subject matter in a comedic way. My work has told the story of legal sex workers finding love in a hopeless place, the complex identities of a biracial Neo-Nazi terrorist and most recently, the ridiculous suppression of women's rights in a dystopian feminist farce.

I create bold, exciting new work that inspires exchange between diverse artists and communities. I write complex stories that place women, people of color, queer people and people with disabilities in the spotlight. I offer a new perspective and voice in American theater, TV, and film.
