My pronouns are whatever you're comfortable with as long as you speak to me with respect. I hit different people differently. I was born with what are assigned female parts, but please make no colonialist assumptions based on this. I'm an Afruikan and Iswa refugee living in Canaan. That's African American expat in Israel in Normalian. I build websites, make art, and assist people in exercising their spirituality for practical benefits. I'm also the king of an ile, Baalat Teva, a group of African spirituality adherents here. Feel free to contact me if you are in need of my services or are likeminded and just want to chat.
