WHAT THIS IS

Welcome! Butterfly Language is a blog covering the intersection between pop-culture, the esoteric, and my own life—operating on the principle that it’s all sorta related to each other!

My site is offbeat, definitely unique, and sort of seizes the Zeitgeist by the short and curlies. Thus, it's a perfect project for which to turn to (bwahmmmm!!!!) CROWD-FUNDING.

The type of topics covered here include:


I also cover various weird current events and have commentary in my "journal" entries.

WHY I NEED FUNDS
For the first stage of my foray into Patreon, my main goal is to pay for my annual Wordpress/Domain Name fee that's due early April, and then financially justify the extra time to invest in this blog on a regular basis. Future goals include books, videos, and and other methods of expanding Butterfly Language's message.

WHO I AM
I'm a blogger, comic book writer, and editor who has worked for MTV, DC, Marvel, Valiant, BOOM! Studios, and many more places like that. I've been a fan of the esoteric and uncanny since I was a little girl, and am very well-read in topics such as metaphysics, UFOs, "hidden history," and many other Fortean topics.

I started my career as an editor on comic books such as JLA, Aquaman, DC: The New Frontier, and Batman: Black and White. I then went on to write comics based on characters including the Punisher, The X-Men, and Clive Barker's Hellraiser.

From 2010-2013 I was the editor-in-chief, producer and writer for MTV's pop-culture website MTVGeek. Then in 2014, my comic book biography of whistleblower Edward Snowden received international online and TV press from outlets as diverse as TIME, The Guardian, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, USA Today, El Mundo, The Voice of Russia, The Washington Post.

My interests grew in 2015 to include science and technology, with a particular interest in artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, space exploration, and future trends.
