The Wrong Type of Anorexic

 Writing has always gone hand and hand with performance for me. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa. However, receiving culturally competent care and finding people with similar experiences proved to be very difficult. In 2017, I won first place in the North Carolina Poet Laureate competition for my poem, The Wrong Type of Anorexic, which spoke to the isolation and pain I felt as a marginalized person with an eating disorder. That poem has allowed me to speak up about my struggles with the UNC Center for Eating Disorders, where I gave a Public Service Announcement about my experience.

Mosaic: A One Woman Show

In 2022, I wrote, produced, and performed in my own one woman show, Mosaic as a part of TheatreFest. Mosaic is about my eating disorder recovery journey, focusing on specifically on relationships, identity, sexual awakening, and Paul Simon. Watch clips here and contact me if you would like to see the full show.  

Coming Soon: Ex-Boyfriends

I am currently working on a new play, Ex-Boyfriends, which centers around the idea of turning memories into objects; specifically turning old lovers into puppets. Join me on a journey through therapy, identity, and objectification, with a little help from friends along the way. Look at the vision boards on the left, and contact me if you would like to read the script.
