I'm a Michigan born, California raised, and now Brooklyn based digital producer, strategist, and writer. I moved to New York City at the beginning of 2016 to work with the people, organizations, and companies I'd admired from afar. Uprooting my life and moving to this city has led me to both personal and professional experiences that I wouldn't trade for anything. I joined the wonderful hardworking CreativeMornings HQ team in the fall of 2016. Outside of CreativeMornings, I like to blog, dance, travel, and publish occasional stories from my phone.

What you think of as being edgy or taboo can change pretty dramatically and quickly, but also, what feels true is often something that outlasts where it is in the moment, or it may be true again at another time.
It took me a long time to feel ready to give myself permission again to write angry poems. . . . I have a lot more reasons to be angry than I used to. When I was a kid I had to drum up that anger, and unfortunately these days, I don't have to drum it up quickly; it's there.
This poem is my newer attempt at finding language for anger and also allowing myself to explore what I once thought of as taboo, or what I once perhaps used as a weapon, and now I'm using with more thoughtfulness.
At the time I understood words to be about shock and power and trying to use taboo to my advantage. I wasn't authentic to how I communicated, who I actually am as an artist or a person. And I grew into my authentic creative voice.

Everything that we produce as digital designers, digital creators disappears into the ether that is the internet after a while.
Content is the most important element of any publication.
I wanted to put the 'face' back into 'interface.'
