Hi. I’m a writer, producer, and a witch.
I grew up in Miami, went to Tufts University in Boston, lived in the jungles of Brazil, started a business working with indigenous Mayan women in Guatemala, and now work in media as a writer, producer, and Instagram kid in Brooklyn. Mostly in that order.
I am Latina, Jewish, and a survivor. I never quite know where I fit.
I work every day to make space for my own story, and work every day to help others tell their own stories too.
I believe that feminism is for everyone, and so it must include the oppressions and struggles of everyone. There is no *feminism* without intersectionality. It is very important to me, and others who are underrepresented, that social movements — and the people in them — understand this.
I use my voice. I write. I create video series and host interviews that allow different people to use their voices too. I build community, both in the physical and digital world. I collaborate and consult with organizations that need help navigating this space. I am good at it.
