I’m a writer, artist, and troublemaking socialite who spends her days professionally wandering about the universe and its many wonders, oversharing my ongoing inner monologues, baring my soul and other things for the whole wide Internet to see.
My favourite beverage is entitled white male tears on the rocks with a chaser of fat babe in a crop top. I'm a Scorpio Sun, Leo Moon, Leo Rising, with an Aries Midheaven and a no-joke Capricorn North Node. My Internet Certified Archnemesis™ is Gary Vaynerchuk. I’m a sucker for anything salted caramel and an enthused evangelist for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. I’m a queer, disabled Black + Indigenous femme. And last but not least, I am also the proud daughter of a Pushcart Prize-nominated poet.
Devoted to Truth, Justice, and Liberation, I live in the spirit of my foremothers: Unbossed. Unbought. Unbothered.
Current Residence: The Windy City (Chicago, Illinois, USA)
The symbolism is many levels thick and well thought out, not just provocateuring for provocateuring’s sake (although that’s fun, and sometimes I do that!)
Here’s a run-down:
I have a stellium in Scorpio (ruler of the 8th house, which is the domain of transformation, healing, sex, finances, death, the occult, power, etc., all the shit), sitting in my 4th house, which is your family and your roots. I am literally rooted in death, sex, and taxes.
I was also born during the time of the year when the Dead are traditionally honored (I was the night before Halloween, and celebrate on Halloween), in the middle of harvest and humping season. My actual birth is also tangentially related in very potent + specific + private ways to all three of these topics in ways that had significant impact on me as a person from childhood through to my adult years.
It's also a clown on the fact that my writing topics trend towards the controversial as fuck and basically everything I word-vomit about is in some way connected back to one of those topics, or is generally just considered a topic you don't discuss in ~polite~ society or company.
I have a deep interest in axiology (the philosophical study of value - i.e., ethics and aesthetics), which is all tangled up in discussing Big Questions related to death, sex, and taxes.
Death, sex, and taxes all represent conceptual values (The unknown & change; vulnerability, intimacy + pleasure; community, power, and value) that are repeat themes in my world and work.
Annnnd the weirdest reason of all is that I am a devotee of La Santisima Muerte, and my website was originally (and still is) designated as a shrine to her in my magical practice. It was only a matter of time, ha.
Great question. I wear several hats ‘round these here parts:
I am an multimedia artist. - With the support of Patreon, I use social media as a platform for my creative expression to explore liberatory world-building, Afrofuturism, and philosophy of living.
I am an expert diviner & professional sorceress. (It’s a vocation, not a money-maker.) - I am a völva (Nordic-Germanic seer-sorceress; witch) with almost a decade of professional practice under my belt, as well as being a high priestess of Juno (Roman Goddess of the treasury, the people, and security) and experienced rootworker. I am also a Luciferian-Feri Demonolatress currently under the mentorship and from the lineage of Elinor Predota. I cater primarily to sex workers/adult entertainers, professional artists & creatives, and people utilizing anti-capitalist/cooperative business models. I offer 3-day turnaround divination, magical consultations, and sorcery-for-hire on a limited case basis.
I’m an author. - My debut book, To Be An Ancestor, will be published on November 20, 2019. Sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of this page to be notified of when pre-orders & the pre-order notification list become available.
The people who hire me + patron my art + read my writing are as varied as the colors of the wind.
My hell yeah people are unapologetic lovers of contradictions, who actively seek to soften the rigidity of their assumptions, and to explore what goodness, truth, and beauty mean in a world that is constantly changing, withering, and chaotic, both for themselves + their work and for how they want to show up in everything they do.
My career - published and unpublished - spans 18 years of daily 1,500+ word scribbles and your standard winding trail of a multipotentialite. I am currently pursuing MicroMasters credentials in Human Rights, as well as being in ongoing professional training, including Randi Buckley’s Healthy Boundaries for Kind People and Dr. Jenn McCabe’s 4 Skills Of Radical Relating.
