Poetry helps me get things off my chest and I can sort through my emotions through my work. There’s something therapeutic thinking that a poem you write is something that someone else has the chance to connect to.

When I’m not writing or working on a community engagement related project, I really enjoy dance and yoga, anything where I can release a lot of physical energy. My dog and I spent a lot of time finding new nature trails or beaches to walk. Being out in nature is one of my biggest inspirations for writing, it allows me to chill out and clear my mind and that’s when the poems start to flow.
