Delighted to announce the publication of a new story, “The Mirror” in The Wells Street Journal Issue 11: The Liminal Edition. So grateful for the opportunity to work with the rest of the team in assembling, editing, and distributing the first print edition of the WSJ.


The womb is the environment in which we, as humans, come into being. Wombs are intrinsically creative spaces. A clef is a musical symbol that indicates the pitch of the notes in a piece of music. Musicians and composers create music by arranging notes within the boundaries of their chosen clef. Clefs are extrinsically creative spaces. By engaging with the interplay between extrinsic and intrinsic forces—reality and consciousness, society and individuality, other and self—humans create art. Womb Clef is a celebration of the boundless potential for creativity that exists in equal proportion within us, within the world, and in the spaces between the world and us.
