I am a writer. My work is centered around creativity, connection, courage and compassion.


After a lifetime (or three) of feeling as though I didn't fit in, I decided to stop trying. And that's when I grew my creative wings. I’ve never looked back.


I am driven by a deep desire to see women claim and keep spaces which support and sustain their entire body and their whole being.


I deeply believe in creativity and its ability to act as a bridge between breaths. Creativity has helped me to understand myself. To believe myself. To have the courage to claim my own space and share my self-expression.


I am here to create:


The art that is found in the quiet, defiant spaces.
The art that is made in spite of. The creativity that is born knowing full well that it may be erased or caged, but takes its first breath anyway. The raw, ragged truths which hold all the riches.


Sanctuary.
The places that protect and preserve us when the edges feel too frayed, the fabric feels too thin and we don’t know how long we will last or how soon we might crumble.


Real connection and true community.
We do not have to be alone during the dark griefs and the long hours. I think that freedom is found when beauty and pain come together and neither one looks away. It's one of the reasons I love roof tops - the sky is full of that kind of witnessing.


A different outcome.
A World that applauds aging without apology. A world that questions beauty and body ideals. I am here to celebrate the years that greet me without needing to erase the experiences that are etched into this skin of mine. I am here to cultivate a space where women define themselves. Where we choose not to view our lives through their lens.


The words that honor the stories beneath the stories.
To notice which parts are tangled and which parts are threadbare. To recognize and write the fabric of us.


I am always interested in the spaces between.
Between what is said or unsaid. Between what is visible or hidden. Between what is accepted or rejected. At the end of every exhale there is a pause, a sliver of a second, a between moment that is almost always unnoticed. But still, it is there. It exists. It is not always true that what is most meaningful is centered or spotlighted. There are unspoken wonders taking place. On the periphery of everything we gaze at, there are a thousand supporting breaths, hands and heartbeats that we do not observe. They matter.


I adore the kind of living that is intentional and deliberate.
The kind of living which reveres the ordinary moments, the ones we are often encouraged to discard or dismiss. A living which challenges the norms we are spoon fed. The deeper layers that have a home way below the surface.


I believe in the space of and/both.
The way in which every truth can co-exist with every conflicting truth. The way we are moving and static and living and dying in the same breath. The way everything is spectacularly connected and stunningly singular. I know now that I do not have to choose between any of it. This is the glorious, terrible human experience and our hearts are breaking and mending all at once.


Creativity is truly my meditation.
Understanding the power of the creative process has been the single most significant experience of my life.


If you are someone who likes glossy marketing, indisputable facts, funnels, loud voices on big stages, definitive lists of how to achieve everything you're currently lacking, step by step plans on how to get "there"... then my work definitely isn't for you.


If you are someone who likes the way that worlds merge when the morning light hits the depth of the dream, the way the right song can catch like a memory in the back of the throat, the fluidity of this life and this living, the way that going to edges of everything can reveal new threads and a whole other fabric, the joy of the solitary moment that you can keep and claim as yours alone.... then my work might be for you.


Thank you for being here.
Because of your patronage I am able to continue to create and share my words and vision. I am able to take the dreams and dare to bring them to life. I am able to carve out a path that I want us to walk together. It takes a village and you are helping me build one. This is no small thing and my gratitude is deep.

Shared Sanctuary

Perhaps every woman yearns for a space in which she might sometimes crawl inside and crumble. A space which will hold her. Without promises of fixing or healing or transcending what is so very human. Here, in this virtual room, I will share some of the words that help me witness my own living. Words that may also help you witness yours.

Shaping the Revolution
$24 or more per month 0 patrons
What does a movement of women who are shaping history really look like? How do we use our creativity to lead a loving, yet unapologetic, revolution? How might we sustain ourselves whilst paving the way for a future that is focused on equality and rooted in justice? Your contribution here helps me to connect with other humans who are seeking to make a difference. That connection looks like attending events and community circles. It looks like creating conversations that give us a chance - and chances change everything.

The real deal. This is where your support helps me take my vision from creative concept to actual in-your-hands tangible. This looks like words on paper destined for pages which will be bound into my first book. And, oh, how I want this book to be born. I want my words to become a landing space, a refuge, an easier breath and an understanding embrace for women. Books have given me more life, more solace and more hope than anything else I've ever known. Here's where I create something truly concrete. And here's where you become a part of it.

Creative work helps create change. It also takes time and dedication, neither of which are generally compensated for. Reaching this goal helps me make my work more sustainable and allows me to keep showing up for others.
