My Story

I am a Black, Queer artist from Southwest Philadelphia, committed to the transformative power of storytelling. I am a survivor of white supremacy. Provocation with purpose makes for dynamic, socially conscious, and challenging work, and my art centers complex, curious inquiries about society, its people, and the psychosis inflicted on marginalized groups by systemic oppression. I create to ignite decolonization and radical healing within communities. I tell brutally honest stories to empower others to tell their own. As an artist and person, it is my mission to build a Utopia we may not live to see.

Sexual Orientation
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.


Gender Identity
iOne’s internal, deeply held sense of gender. Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.


iRacial identity is the qualitative meaning one ascribes to one’s racial group, whereas ethnic identity is a concept that refers to one’s sense of self as a member of an ethnic group. At their core, both constructs reflect an individual’s sense of self as a member of a group; however, racial identity integrates the impact of race and related factors, while ethnic identity is focused on ethnic and cultural factors. We celebrate our Keys’ intersectionality and understand that creating one’s racial/ethnic identity is a fluid and nonlinear process that varies for every person. Many folks will identify with more than one background while others will identify with a single group more broadly.
