I’m a marketing consultant, poet, astrologer, tarot reader, and dog keeper in Portland, OR.
I study various schools of critical theory and apply those tenets to tv shows, 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/divine/the numinous, intersectional feminism, attachment theory and developmental trauma, epigenetics, complex PTSD, and memory and trauma.
My poems have shortlisted and 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.
Current tv series: What We Do in the Shadows, Nine Perfect Strangers, Black Lady Sketch Show. The Wire (rewatch).
Current podcasts: Criminal, Terrible, Thanks for Asking, This is Love
