Personal Profile

EmergingScholars_110321_0018 copy.jpg

I'm a young writer and artist from the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. A grandchild of the great migration (via Mississippi, Arkansas, and Georgia)  I'm a recent graduate of Yale University, where I majored in Computing and the Arts. I'm now an Emerging Scholar at the Princeton University Center for Information Technology Policy and the Ida B. Wells Just Data Lab, where I research liberatory technologies, digital marronage, and Black Techno-Ecologies. I love writing and dreaming of new futures where Black folks can be freer than they are here. In my spare time, I like collaging, playing with my band Speakeasy, and reading the ever growing pile of books on my night stand. Below are some of my experiences - download my CV for the full list of my experiences.
