dylan was born, lives, and works on the occupied territories of the Kumeyaay Peoples.

dylan recognizes the genocide of Indigenous Peoples in areas now called california, within the greater US and the systemic inequalities that exist upon those areas because of this colonialism. dylan finds inspiration from this land, and from the land of the Kumeyaay on which dylan is allowed to reside.

dylan does not use pronouns.
