(artist statement) a culturally liminal space is most familiar, orbiting the things which are lost in shift. existing in linguistic hybridity, I write from an ethnically ambiguous body experiencing the self and colliding with the other. my work is autofictional and falls largely into the realm of poetry, often responding to my investigation of personal lineage and what is carried / uncarried after migration. I am interested in religious dogmatism, code-switching, cultural performance, love and nostalgia.
