As you can see, I haven’t posted anything here on Medium in about a year. And there’s a good reason for that:


I hate trying to find the right words to describe what I’m thinking and feeling. I hate trying to come up with something new to say all the time. I hate having anxiety attacks over whether the TERFs and anti-woke assholes will weaponize my words against me to the point of suicide. I hate spending hours losing my mind over getting a piece finished, only to get a few claps here and there for it. I hate writing. I hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate writing!

So instead I paint and make experimental music.

You can find my Etsy shop here, and my music here.
