Welcome to the story.

I was born and raised in the misty mountains of the Pacific Northwest and now live in a coastal nook of sunny Southern California.

I started this blog to chronicle my life growth. To muse. To learn. To share. To communicate. It’s morphed over time. Now it’s more of an action to follow a passion. I love stories and I absorb them in any medium I can, whether it’s through reading, TV, movies or writing them myself.  We all see parts of ourselves in these stories and we grow from our experiences with them. We watch characters that struggle through the same things we do and we know that we are not alone anymore. We find pieces of ourselves, our souls, in these stories. We find the art, the beauty and the pain inspiring and awakening. In turn, we show up to the world, carrying the knowledge to move forward in our lives, to make changes, to express feelings, to just simply be alive.

Life is too short to waste time on things we are not passionate about. Everyday I listen to what my heart calls me to do. There is no way you can regret following your heart. The challenging part is having the courage to commit.  Our stories and the stories of others, can help inspire us to do this. All I hope to do here is invoke a commonality among people that inspires great transformation by sharing my own experiences and stories that have shaped me as an artist and as a human being living this life.

In the next few weeks, things will be under construction here (much like life) and I’m very much looking forward to sharing the journey.
