About Me

IMG_0034

You should probably know that I am Black, born into a middle class family, raised in Falcon, Colorado at a time when it was smaller and whiter than it is now. I was raised in the Baha’i faith and that fact has proven to be quite definitive of my outlook on life. I am currently a meditating atheist, though that might change. I am currently in a group house in Washington D.C and working as a activist, artists and collector of oral histories. I consider myself a radical liberal who is currently looking for alternative paradigms to investigate but that might change.  I identify as a cisgendered male and that probably won’t change. I believe strongly in gender equality and ending the gender binary but realize that I have lot of latent patriarchal thoughts to deconstruct before I can be an effective ally and I am working to make that to change. I love being Black even more than I love critiquing Black culture and I hope that never changes. I love music, especially Hip Hop. Though I’m currently getting really into DC’s DIY Progressive Punk scene and loving it.

I am currently working on several multi-media projects. I am deeply involved in Housing Issues in the District of Columbia and am working on an housing interview project. I am also writing for Rhymes & Reasons and AgitateDC.
