if you like my blog, feel free to buy me a coffee:


I go by J. I’m a 25 year old artist and writer based in Houston, TX. I identify as a transmasculine person, my pronouns are they/them, and im Black. I’m into music, gaming, astrology, being a Cat Dad to my 2 kitties, and being a loving and dedicated partner in my relationship.

I’m currently trying to find ways to survive in late-stage capitalism with some integrity; thus I’m a PhD program dropout. I might return to get what i earned, i might not. still trying to determine the cost/benefit analysis of doing so. I’m available for paid freelance writing and web design work: a sample of my work can be found at www.voteivansanchez.com.

This blog is a more public diary of observations and commentary from a Black, queer, trans, U.S.-born lens.

I earned bachelors’ degrees in Psychology and African & African Diaspora Studies from UT Austin and a Business Foundations Certificate from the McCombs School of Business in May 2015.
