about mary

Height: 5"4'   |   Gender: Evolving (she/they pronouns)   |   Hair Color: Changeable

I identify as a pansexual queer, born in unceded Pennacook territory near what is now called Walden Pond. I grew up with New England accents and a good mess of cousins. I come from women who are scientists and computer technicians who worked hard to stay working. I come from immigrants who lived through World War II and never much liked to talk about it.

In the late 2000s I went to a French theater school and learned a bit about other styles of colonialism, of gender, of poetry, of comradeship. 

In 2008 I settled in Lenapehoking and started making art in the hope of a revolution.

I am still hopeful.

 Special Skills 

I am trained as a physical theater performer in mime, movement, clown and mask.

I've done a lot with puppets. I organize protests. I have been doing grantwriting and development for multiple non-profits for over 10 years. I sing often in cabarets, sometimes in musicals and once, to my delight, in an opera. I am an amateur musician with an enthusiasm for drums. I speak French.

I know a lot about Napoleon for no good reason.
