I am currently based out of Athens, Ohio, where I am growing as a social researcher, deepening my helping practice, and refining creative writing projects.

I am proudly Andean, qhariwarmi, and disabled. I cherish Pachamama, my Manteño and Huancavilca ancestors, and my Q’ero teachers. I prefer gender-neutral pronouns. I embrace self and community care.
