I have always wanted to be a storyteller. Even as a child, when the “what do you want to be when you grow ups” were answered a ballerina! a doctor! or a camp director!, it was always the story, the invention, the construction of those careers that fascinated me. I wanted to know where the ballerinas came from, why some wore rubies and others pearls to the parlor after dancing. I wanted to know my “patients” very well, tossing the stethoscope aside to fill out pages and pages upon patient files - who they were, what they felt, how they came to be broken. I spoke to parents on the play phone and knew my campers by allergy and middle name, designing itineraries and imagining summers in a haze of glue sticks and wildflowers. 

In a society that raised me with a tight grip on the hand that holds the pen, I was often told that storytelling was nothing more than a hobby. Writing was meant to be a passion project, a spare-time gig, nothing to make a living out of. For a moment, I believed them.

But stories are crucial. They allow us to escape miles in minutes or make standing still more bearable. They remind us of who we are, tell us who we are becoming, and prophesize all that we will be.

I want to bring you stories. I am very lucky to have a day job that I enjoy, but as many know, it's hard to make it in New York City as an artist beyond paycheck to paycheck. Your support would allow me the time and resources to grow a creative empire that I've only dreamt of. I am currently the author of three poetry books: Paper and BonesRabbit Holes, and More Than Anything. I am working on two novels, running a lifestyle blog/website, writing journalistic articles, making YouTube videos, creative short pieces, an online store of creative-oriented whimsical things, and saving up for my big dream of doing this full-time.

Of course, I'll always continue providing content for free on various other platforms, especially on my blog and my Tumblr, but I will treat this like my little club, giving you all an inside look at some of my inner-workings and gifting the special things I create first to you as a thank you for supporting me and my magical dream.
