I’m a creative director, poet, astrologer, tarot reader, student of wing chun, and beekeeper in Portland, OR.
I study various schools of critical theory and apply those tenets to tv shows and film and life. I’ve spent time considering Buffy, Angel, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Deadwood through such lenses. Other topics of interest and areas of study include: aesthetics of hunger, faith, intersectional feminism, attachment theory and developmental trauma, epigenetics, complex PTSD, and memory and trauma.
My poems have appeared in Vinyl Poetry & Prose, g a z e, Muse/A Journal, thethepoetry, and others. Essays have appeared in DRIVE, Pacific Northwest Horticulture, American Mead Maker, and others. I co-edited Winged: New Writing on Bees.
Special thanks to Bex H. for keeping the conversation going, and sharing her ongoing thoughts on queer theory and futurity as they apply to Angel.
Current tv series: Sharp Objects, and old high school social propaganda / etiquette-based instructional films from the 1940’s.
Current podcasts: You Must Remember This (as always), Criminal, Reply All
