Your legacy is based in your life and work. Be conscious of the legacy you’re creating; next, build strong foundations in order to anchor that legacy in place. I work as a writer, speaker, and mental health advocate who leads conversations about what we leave behind.
Whether I’m speaking to a room of well-published writers, to ten consumers at a mental health clinic, or to thousands of quirky folks working to change the world, my message is not just about my personal story, but about everyone’s story: there is nothing broken about us.
Where’s the Electricity? is a powerful workbook and audio that contains my method of finding the energetic source behind your work: obsessions and themes. Light Gets In is a book about living well with mental illness. Find these, and other creations, in the store.
In addition to publishing work in places such as Salon, Jezebel, and The Toast, I also write online in the Journal about legacy-building, the writing life, and living well with chronic illness and schizoaffective disorder. Each piece is accompanied by an audio recording.
