I am an out-of-the-box author and speaker in recovery from alcoholism, addiction, suicidality, self-harm, disordered eating, cancer, Breast Implant Illness, and an odd period of time when I only listened to dub-step. I am here to share my experience, strength, and hope in my own unique way.

The work I share consists of creative non-fiction writing, paintings, videos, doodles, sock puppets, raps, and maybe even a haiku if I’m feeling feisty.

My goals are to help complex or taboo issues become more digestible, to help sensitive people realize they’re gifted and not crazy, and to generally make fun of life.

I like puns and dad jokes and hippos and seeing strangers be kind to one another. I am severely in love with my significant other and his two daughters, along with my diva-dog, Floyd. When I’m not getting lost in creative expression, you can find me doing Choi Kwang Do or yoga, hiking, baking, or watching The Matrix or a Will Smith movie.
