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.
I write to explore how to undo this damage — physically, mentally, and spiritually.

- How to capture experience with words? Fictionalizing The World
- How to feel connected with others? Encouraging Environments
