I WRITE

to create space where relevant satire has a home in alternative reality. I engage with imaginative, humorous, and often absurd stories that nudge both the individual and the circles in which they move toward the better. We as people are highly effected by the media we consume, and as a queer woman with an incredible sense of humor, I want to be influencing what that media tells us. Inspired by all pop culture but especially Jill Soloway, Jordan Peele, Chris Guest, Carrie Brownstein and the Sedarises. Sedaris'. Sedari?
