I'm AJ

I write plays

sometimes I perform in them 

my pronouns are they/them

I’m not a scholar but I went to school

this is not an essay

I'm trying not to try too hard but to try, still

I want us to be there for each other


I think I'm also an amateur community builder. I love connecting people and their art. I am here for that moment when isolated thoughts are consumed and then reciprocated, their story feeding off yours, a Big Bang of understanding, hearing the voices return to you, yes.


voices that are tender and disruptive

this is my vein of gold: a desire for stories set in a world where our biggest fears are already alive

and then there's us


spreading humanity like a cancer


light seeking light 

(let's make something)
