i am a drag performer and founder of the FLINT performance group - venus boys. i perform around the city with the group and individually as camp dad or shirley knott. since the pandemic i have turned to film making, and i recently made a mid-length drag film about gender theory, art, and queerness. through drag i have developed my skills as a makeup artist and often paint other people in the drag of their choice. i also give workshops with the venus boys about gender, drag, makeup, and costume. before the pandemic i also worked at a queer bar (silver future) where i ran a monthly show

my biggest role model is taylor mac, a drag performer from the us who brings the art of drag to large institutional theatre spaces
