Artist Statement

My writing practice gravitates towards processes and phenomena that exhibit change or transformation as their defining features. How do we register, let alone describe to others, shifts in cognition? In my own work, I aspire to avail myself to the changes I feel taking place all around me, while documenting through language the moments when certain bodies and cellular configurations decide, often spontaneously, to materialize in ways that cannot be accounted for. It sounds abstract, but it’s really not: I’m trying to develop a language to describe a world in flux.

While at Headlands

I am excited to be working on a new novel.
