I am a thirty-to-thirty-something year old writer living in North Mississippi. I have a tendency towards the awkward, a fondness for the bizarre, and a little bit of what my mama called “a smart mouth”.
I’ve published a few pieces locally, but writing for xojane is my first “big break”, so my fragile artist’s ego is tied up in whether or not you love me. Yes, you, personally.
I’m passionate about opposing bigotry and racial bias, and I believe that the best way to make myself a better person is to learn to understand people who are different from me. And yeah, hate is still deep in the south.
I believe that looking good makes you feel good, and feeling good makes you look good. Make the most of every excuse to dress up. Some day you might find your wardrobe relegated to waitress uniforms and pajama pants.

Also, I hope to soon announce a new musical project along with some friends of mine, so stay tuned!
