About Me

I’m both a chronic wanderer and a homebody at heart.

My passions include criminal justice reform, helping the still-suffering addict, and collecting children.

I’m a first-time author, long-time writer. After years of traversing compounded trauma, addiction, and its resulting consequences, I am proudly free of all mood-changing and mind-altering substances.

Against Such Things is my first book, and its completion is a lifelong dream fulfilled.
