I’m really happy you’re here.
First, a Disclaimer
You’ll probably learn more about me in this space than you’re comfortable with. I write about everything from painful poops to my thoughts about god, and all the stuff in between. It can get pretty rated-R around here, and I don’t use trigger warnings, but remember that almost everything I write is complete fiction.
All that being said, I hope you find something you like, and hit me up if you have any questions, or just want to talk.
All of my best stuff is collected in my self-published chapbooks that are available in a variety of formats, and are all free-to-read.
Here’s some of the good stuff, if you’re looking for a sample of my poetry:
And here are some of my short stories:
Or, if you’re feeling especially brave, you can also dive in and browse all of my posts.
More About My Process
I publish almost everything I write in both an effort to keep myself accountable to how much I’m actually writing, and to track my creative progress in a very tangible way.
I firmly believe that in order to call yourself a writer, you must actually be writing. I also believe that for every great author that is loved and admired, they have a mountain of awful shit that nobody has ever read. Welcome to my mountain.
I’ve been writing pretty much constantly since I was about 12, when I learned that writing is a really low-impact way to channel your angst. Over the years I’ve pushed myself to write more and more, and to try to write things that I liked to read.
I think of my “body of work” (if you can call it that) as having a ratio of stuff that I like versus complete garbage. Right now, I would say that I have a 1-10 ratio, meaning that for every 10 things I write, one of them is worth reading.
Another big part of my philosophy of writing is something that folks from Alan Watts to Neil Gaiman have said in one form or another, and I will attempt to reiterate here:
One should push themselves to the limits of self-exposure. Anything worth reading will come from that place of artistic nudity.
For me, that mostly translates to a lot of millennial angst and poems about how fat I feel; but I think that’s as good a place to start as any.
If you’ve read anything I’ve written, thank you. If you’ve ever provided me any feedback, I love you. I welcome criticism and am always looking for ways to learn and challenge myself. So if you have anything you would like to say or if you have a question, please, send it to me now.
Thank you for indulging me, and have a fun time reading my stuff.
