I am a nonbinary, transgender Latinx comic artist, illustrator, speculative fiction author, and social justice activist, recovering from a childhood growing up Mormon in the Mountain West.
I am the adoptive parent of two neurotic cats and a small army of stuffed animals.
My visual art has appeared in shows at Milieu PDX, The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, and Metropolitan State University of Denver.
My writing has been published by Fantastic Stories of the Imagination, Lightspeed Magazine, Trapeze Mag, Paragraph Planet, Salon, and more.
