For my first blog post EVER, I thought it would be best to forgo all of that in medias res BS that our classical authors (ahem Homer) insisted was superior. So let's start where we should: Day One.
I was born on February 15th, 1994, the cursed day after Valentines Day (which continues to haunt my single ass 23 years later). February 15th also happens to make me an Aquarius. Despite my adamant opposition to all things non-science supported, it turns out my personality perfectly aligns with the typical Aquarian quirks and flaws, making me creative and often too honest for my own good. For better or worse, both of these traits have manifested themselves in various ways throughout my youth and budding career.
As long as I can remember, I have always wanted to tell stories and speak my truth. Whether that was performing in school plays in elementary school (I was 3rd understudy for Christine in my 5th Grade production of Phantom of the Opera), my embarrassing but hilarious short-lived YouTube career with my best friend through high school, or through my current career in digital media, I am always seeking to both share my own musings and challenge others' convictions.
So, I invite you to join me in my journey to continue to tell these stories, big or small, lighthearted or heart-wrenching, but always unapologetically me.
