I’m a poet and theorist who explores intersections of environmental humanities with critical race, queer, trans, feminist, and de-colonial studies. My current research projects investigate the altered shorelines of the Black and Duwamish rivers, the assembly of poetic voice under the guidance of animals, and the forest relations of trans and queer youth in rural Appalachia (my home region). My teaching foregrounds writing, experiment, forays outside the classroom, and other collaborative explorations.
