I'm in the early stages of developing a podcast centering risk-taking as a tool for survival. My project will feature intergenerational voices on topics of queer identities, sex work, drug use, harm reduction, activism, and other experiences that require an inherent acceptance of risk, and all of the joy and pain that comes with those risks.
I love to write, talk, share, and learn about sex, identity, illness, and community, and I am open to collaboration of all kinds.
Audio is new to me, and I am excited to learn new skills to bolster the work that I already do. I'm a member of the interdisciplinary What Would an HIV Doula Do? collective, where the explore the cultural response to the ongoing HIV/AIDS crisis.
I also teach storytelling and facilitation classes at Campfire, a St. Louis-based organization. I'm involved in local efforts to decriminalize HIV and sex work, and I'm an adjunct professor at the Brown School of Social Work, where I earned a master's degree specializing in sexual health and education.
I was honored to be selected as a Campfire Fellow in 2017, where I got to hone in on story development, facilitation, and public speaking skills. My live keynote talk on the season question "How do you find your place in the world?" was recorded and shared on the Campfire at Home podcast.
