My Story

A minority lottery winner, I have spent my life getting to see the world through others perspectives. Originally from small-town Ohio I alway felt out of place and yearned for something more. Bored with school and wanting to escape my personal life,I dove deep into learning about the world, other cultures, people, and what makes us human. 


I figured I’d always be in Ohio, a little out of place and bit out of step with my peers. To the ridicule of the adults around me, in college I decided I was going to get a degree in communications, deeply fascinated by humanity, what motivates us, and how we share that with others.

I finally decided what I want to be when I grow up (for now), a renaissance man! (No I’m not running away to the fair.) So... When the pandemic took away dancing and then over time dwindling interest in online dance classes, I really found myself lost. I stumbled head...

Intimidation, Mental Health and Cuttin’

*this is from a practice prior to covid-19. Don’t @ me I’m loooking up into the eyes of one of my dearest friends and I, for the first time I am afraid. I fight the urge to step back, to look away to hide, as my mind reminds me of all my insecurities… loudly. I, for...
