"She's stuck between who she is, who she wants to be and who she should be."

But she'll try to tell her story anyway.



I see myself as a simple being: a lover of iced Chai, city lights, and meaningful conversations.

My bedroom is littered with a dozen photographs. I am a nostalgic. Lost things that have been buried under years of dust find meaning within me: an old tee shirt, a stained letter, a crumpled bill, a moldy vinyl record, a discarded diary.

I associate mundane objects with complex emotion; trivial minutes, too. I am a thinker. Some significant events in my life have been volatile due to my subjective (and thus poor) decision-making skills.

It is for this reason that many of my pieces grow into subtle commentaries that reek of dark imagery. Through my writing, I express the flaws and beauty of mankind with vivid emotion whilst experiencing hidden parallels to my life behind the filtered diction. 

Welcome to my website. Click around. Find parallels between the lines.

I am grateful for you – grateful that you are willing to understand the world through my lens. Thank you for stopping by.
