I am a 38 year old trans man living in San Francisco. I lived for over decade in the rural south, much of that time amongst a thriving rural queer community, and have entered city life once again to care for my community full time. I medically transitioned 12 years ago at the age of 25 and had top surgery with Dr. Beverly Fischer in February 2008. I have over 16 years of experience as a caregiver in all capacities from meal prep, medical needs, and transportation; to advocacy and emotional support.

Additional Caregiving Experience:
I'm a 30 year old woman of trans experience living in the country in Tennessee. I grew up in Baltimore providing care for family members and friends with chronic conditions. I have 5 years of experience with trans surgery support, including cooking, medical attention, care plans, fundraising, and tending to the spirit. Similar to how doulas offer support around birth or death, I can work with a person as requested to honor transition as a sacred rite.
