I make art. Most of it is centered around words, language, and text. So call me a language artist. I'm a poet, a translator, a letterpress printer, a digital book designer, and I recently took up embroidering. I'm the Editor and Executive Director of Anomalous Press, and the former Executive Director of the American Literary Translators Association.

With support from patrons I will be able to devote more and more of my working hours to making new art. There are so many new projects I want to work on, and so few hours in the day. Help me devote more of those hours to making language-based art!

Goals
$89 of $100 per month
Being a queer, latinx, boricua, nonbinary, neurodivergant artist is hard, friends. My health insurance is expensive, as are my medications. This would cover my monthly medication cost.
