My Vices: Really luxurious mani/pedis. Bourbon and fresh picked lemon in my tea before bed. Macaroni and Cheese – like the whole box at one time. Being near, in, or on the water… Snuggling. And men who cook. Cook for me and I’m yours.

My Virtues: Empathetic, loyal, and kind. I give thoughtful gifts. I share and play well with others. Your success is never my failure. Birthdays. I love birthdays. If I love you, I will celebrate the fuck out of you. And courage. I’m really fucking brave.

The Present: Eclectic. I wear a lot of hats these days. I’m a full time freelance artist. I don’t have a day job, and I love it. Woohoo! I’m making my way in fields that don’t make sense together on paper. In a city and industry that wants to put you in a box, I’m carving out my own place in the world. Which is exciting and scary. Truthfully, I’m jealous of my friends who do just one thing. How thrilling to not have to explain yourself again and again. How stable and respectable. In the span of one day I can be in a high power pitch meeting with my writing partner to then dancing in pasties on top of a bar for tips. Go figure. It will all add up in time. I’m proud of how far I’ve come and looking forward to how far I will go.

The Future: I plan to be the co-creator of a TV show. My partner and I have gotten close and continue to get closer. We won’t go away… So watch out.

Substance is: Understanding what it means to have integrity. Usually the easy thing and the right thing are never the same thing. Do what’s right anyway. Please? Integrity is like a muscle. If you are not in the habit of flexing it, how can you expect to know how to use it or for it even to have the strength you require? Stop making excuses. Do the right thing.

Style is: Using tangible fashion/hair/make up/accessories/body modifications to express your intangible self authentically, irregardless of trends or social pressures. It’s you being you.

Slut is: A woman who disrupts the status quo. A target for fear driven rage because she subverts expectations and refuses to live with shame. She is complex and compelling. A happy girl. A sexy girl. A miracle.
