2018

When I started out as a writer, I never imagined getting as far as I have. While I am determined and ambitious, I just kind of expected this career path to be a waiting game where a whole lot of nothing happens. And sometimes it feels like that.  But even during "slow" months-- months where I feel like I'm not being productive at all-- if I sit down to reflect on what I've accomplished, I usually feel less guilty about just having binge-watched an entire series on Netflix that has nothing to do with anything I'm working on. 

My first book came out November of 2013. Since then, I've had three books published (one was a finalist for an award I respect and still hope to win one day), over a dozen short stories published in anthologies and journals (domestic AND international); I was on the cover of a tattoo magazine, had modeling work published in a few other art books, met A LOT of really cool people, got to travel to BECAUSE of my work, was in a music video, and so much more. 

And now? 

Shiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttt. My name is going to be attached to a lot of books coming out this year. I have hefty travel plans (Greece, Spain, and a handful of domestic trips -- just to give you an idea). I was gifted a brand new camera for photography and videography, as well as a recording studio for podcasts and voice acting. Not even five full years and I feel blessed (or whatever) AF. It's been wild, and looks like it's only gonna get wilder. With that in mind, I started up a Patreon. There's gonna be a lot of output this year, with a lot more already lining up for 2019, and I will do my best to document as much of it in exclusive content for Patreon subscribers. So stay tuned.

I hope you have the most awesome New Year. Thanks for reading.
