There's something magical about a dream coming true. For nearly a decade I've wanted to bring my weirdness to life—in it's most authentic (and complete) form as possible. I kicked off my Instagram in November 2018 where I shared my first poem publically for the first time ever. I've grown a lot since then, but one thing has remained a constant for me—creating art simply because it brings me joy.
There are a lot of reasons I write, photograph, shoot video and collaborate with others, but none greater than the fact that I can because I want to. For most of my life I lived in the fear of everyone else's opinions for my life, nearly robotic of needing the approval of everyone before I made my own decisions.
This collection has been a defining moment for me to take back the control of my life, to say out loud, in front of everyone to myself: I'm not scared of you anymore.
