I am a Queens born and bred Nuyorican mami media maker. I use the word mami to encompass not just my role as the primary caregiver to two ChileRican daughters but my place as a Latin@ luchadora with a proud puta streak. I use the word media maker because daily I communicate who I am, what I represent and believe, and what I want to see in the world to others. I do that through my work as freelance writer, blogger, poet, educator, performance artist, and activist.
