Growing up, I spent hours watching my mother, Mamí DJ, write letters to our far-away father, Papi DJ, whose work took him away for months at a time. Given the distance between us and most of our family who are scattered/displaced across the US, our family had ample opportunity to explore creative ways of communicating with loved ones. Taking what we learned in those early years of diasporic-comms, I continue writing as a means of connecting with kin across space, time, and borders (a key part of survivance). Like Papi DJ, who once included a VHS tape in a letter home, I like playing with different media types including video, GIS maps, infographics, audio (i.e. podcasts), and visual arts. This experimentation extends to both my personal & professional work. Below you'll find some examples of these types of works including poems, essays, and peer reviewed articles.
