inspo facto

December 23rd, 2021 As every year ends, we tend to curl up in our chair, stare out the window, and reflect on who we are, where we’ve been, and what the hell we’re even doing. That is definitely what I’m doing right now. As I learn more and more about people who make an actualContinue reading “inspo facto”

Happy 15 to Love & Fear

December 10th, 2021 Fifteen years ago, in September, I released my second album, “Love & Fear.” I remember the beginning of 2020. (It was a very long time ago. I would understand if you couldn’t think back so far.) I knew that the 15th anniversaries of all three of my Next Step albums were goingContinue reading “Happy 15 to Love & Fear”

CHVRCHES & Donna Missal at the Armory

November 18th, 2021 Sometimes you just need to be in a room with transcendent art to remind you why you love art and why you love making it. We saw CHVRCHES last night at the Armory and they were brilliant; their opening act, Donna Missal, became an instant new favorite, her sound impossible to pinContinue reading “CHVRCHES & Donna Missal at the Armory”

Introduction: Fall 2021 Collection

September 19th, 2021 Hi. Hey. Hi! I wasn’t sure how to start this introduction to myself so I used all three as a placeholder and I forgot to go back and delete two. I’ll be going out into the world for the next month and meeting new friends and possible fans and hopefully not potentialContinue reading “Introduction: Fall 2021 Collection”

The Argument For Art Now

July 27th, 2021 I want to start by saying that I have the utmost respect for people who take their time. I do. I just want to make that clear because in a few sentences it’s going to sound like I don’t. I can’t stand people who take their time. Damn. It only took oneContinue reading “The Argument For Art Now”

Brushfire Cover Reveal!

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire. I’ve been working on this story for a long time (and as you can see, it’s titled Wave 1, which means that it’s just the beginning of aContinue reading “Brushfire Cover Reveal!”

Tangled

July 14th, 2021 There was a fun anniversary yesterday that I kept thinking on but never got around to posting about. On July 13th, 2003, I had my high school graduation party, and The Next Step released their first EP, called Tangled Cords. I know 18 years seems like a random and not very seminalContinue reading “Tangled”

Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?

May 31st, 2021 There’s an episode of Black Mirror called San Junipero that is based on the idea of a digital life and afterlife. It’s my favorite and one of the rare installments of Black Mirror that has an undeniably happy ending. Without spoiling anything, the end of the episode uses “Heaven Is A PlaceContinue reading “Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?”

The Ghost of You

March 21st, 2021 I’m used to losing little things all the time. I have to let go of small stuff on a daily, sometimes hourly basis. In less than a year, I lost my job, a parent and my car. I would like to think that my practice of loss would keep me conditioned toContinue reading “The Ghost of You”
