I write, make + create to get soul-naked in my own life and invite my audiences to do the same. 

From spoken word poetry, to fiction, to blogging, my writing has taken many forms over the years as I continue to evolve as an artist. In 2014, I launched a blog called The Silhouettic, on which I offered my thoughts and insight on how to lead a deeper life, a life of introspection, spiritual awareness, and burgeoning consciousness.

But to be completely honest (as I always will be on here, you'll come to find), I grew bored of the blogging world--of cranking out free content and feeling like I was vomiting my writing into the social media void in the desperate race for likes, shares, and retweets. So, I stopped. Since then, I've focused my attention on my acting career (yes, I am both a working actor and writer), and I've been a bit more protective of my writing until I figured out how to fit it into my creative life in a way that felt like I was adding value to my readers' lives and still receiving support in return. 

Since then, I've been regularly sharing short-form poems and even some tongue-in-cheek quotes on my Instagram under the hashtag #getsoulnaked, while also sharing what's going on in my world as an actor, dog mom, and overall hustlin' creative. 

But this -- this Patreon page -- is different. It's a game changer. It takes the victimized "struggling artist" archetype and kicks it to the curb. I no longer have to feel like my writing is being dumped into the landfill of a newsfeed. This place is sacred ground, and it's all for you to join in as much as you please. Here, I'm not holding back. I will share my poetry and writing with you in complete and utter devotion to you, my readers. I will listen. I will write. And then I will pour it into your mouths like liquid gold, like nectar, let it go straight to the hungry hollow of your bones. 

With the launch of this Patreon page, I have also launched a new Instagram account dedicated to my writing: @thewrittensoul. This is so that I can give my writing the space and nurturance it deserves, as well as to better delineate what I'm up to as a writer versus what I'm up to as an actor. Follow there for more content (and to double check that my followers there never get to see the insider content I save for your eyes only over here). 

Endless gratitude for being here. Now: get reading below...
