My debut book of poems, Americón, is being published by Wendy’s Subway in the fall of 2021!
I’m incredibly honored and excited.

Of Americón, the incredible poet Renee Gladman wrote:

“The question that seems most urgent in this thoughtful and moving collection is how do we envision systems of care and responsibility for the languages we inhabit, the identities we carry, the people we love, the sites of memory rooting at the edges of the physical world. And, in its own expansiveness, the book lays out a path toward possible answers: we start liminally, in awe of thresholds.”
