So, when I'm not exchanging Anti-White-Supremacy-in-Diasporic-Culture tweets asking where is the balance with a Pitchfork editor, or instagramming my beloved Staten Island, or working on the new Los Rakas project which is out on Tuesday (new visuals in Complex Magazine today), I'm definitely writing a lot more! Tune-in with me.

Peep some of my latest writing, but most importantly, let's engage, re-frame and re-imagine together, because THERE IS NO OTHER POINT TO THE INTERNET RIGHT NOW. We must amplify voices that are under heard, nah mean? 

I also just finished a piece about DIY makers in Staten Island for Cluster Magazine (can't wait to share it!) and working on a post about current climate of Latinos in US Hip-Hop culture. So stay tuned, you'll be hearing from me!

Hugs and Kisses from mi conrazón!

El Agua Corrio: Wrote this in-depth piece about my 2012 visit to Cartagena, Colombia for "El Mercado Cultural del Caribe" - I highlighted all the great talent I heard! It meant a lot to me to visit the region, as it's where my father is from. #FutureRoots
"Society is missing something with the lack of woman voices being A PART of the discussion.” In this piece, I highlight artist Nisha K. Sembi and her work with Kalakari Collective.

Is it in the imbalance where we'll find the root of all this current chaos?
