other projects

I am fundamentally a multimedia artist, even if writing has remained my chief passion. I perform and create music, I dance, I dabble in photography & other visual arts, I act, I direct, and I am an experienced theatrical lighting designer. I thrive on rhythm, passion, violence, drama, disturbance, and color. Here is a CV of my non-written work.

Modeling & dance

For a few years, I took a journey into modeling & dance on Boston’s alt/goth scene. These activities are now on pause, but my alter ego appeared in:

  • Xmortis @ TT the Bear’s/The Middle East, 2015-2018 (go-go dancer)
  • Alternative Culture Couture @ Boston First Night 2015, a multimedia fashion show & burlesque organized by Brooke Morgan, 2014 (runway model)



Visual arts



One day I hope to get back into conlangs (constructed languages), but in the meantime, here’s a rundown of exactly which languages I speak, since some people seem to get curious about this.

English – fluent, native speaker; several accents at varying degrees of realism
Swedish – proficient; best at reading/writing; actively studying
French – highly proficient with previous borderline fluency
Russian – intermediate level
Welsh – beginner level; actively studying
Mandarin – beginner level
Spanish, German, Italian, and a handful of other Romance, Germanic, or Slavic languages – rudimentary listening/reading comprehension and phonetic confidence
Finnish, Hungarian, Japanese, possibly some others – morphosyntactic familiarity and faint phonetic confidence
Arabic – tried it and have forgotten nearly all of it, but one day…
