Andrew Plainview

G’Day!

I'm a writer, aspiring dancer, and someday maybe yoga teacher.

In my 20s I disguised myself as a poker player. After a decade sitting at the poker table, my muscles harden into a metal casing, my emotions struggled to inform my decisions, supplemented by 1s and 0s, and my heart retreated from life, I forgot I once loved to draw.

The disguise became all of me.
