Oh, to be a Millennial. Which of course, I barely know anything about. I'm literally on the cusp of the Millennial movement, stuck in between the end of Gen X and the first year of the Millennial generation. Early 80's babies, we don't really connect with those who were born in the 70's, and we... Continue Reading →
A couple of weeks ago I participated in an awesome event in CT, the 4th Annual Phenomenal Women Panel. I was blessed to sit among three other phenomenal women, as we each shared our stories of how we came to be the women we are today. It's always amazing when you decide to open up...

I grew up poor, with limited resources and opportunities. When the 90's recession hit, my family went from lower middle class to just lower class.

That you woke up with a song on your lips, a little... Continue Reading →
A couple of days ago, I was having a conversation about the lack of a viable creative community in San Diego, or at least one I could find. I lamented on how I'd been lacking with my writing and other creative pursuits, and that I wanted to get back to doing "cooler" things, and creating... Continue Reading →
